This place is far away from any large town. It's great for seeing the night sky. The cabin was clean and there was a fridge so you could make simple meals in your room. The rooms on the east side were probably better as they seemed to have an outside spot to sit behind the cabin rather then where your... More

This cabin was nice enough; decently comfortable and certainly adequate. We were traveling with friends who were in an RV and their campground was an easy walk, which was nice for all of us. The problem with accommodations inside the parks are they are too expensive for what you get and the dining options are pretty awful. Fellow travelers in... More

We stayed at the Cedar Pass Lodge while visiting Badlands National Park. We had a very well-appointed and modern private cabin with a nice front porch for sitting and looking at nature. The cabin had two large beds and everything that you need on a visit to a national park, including parking right at your door. And you are inside... More

We spent one night here in October. The cabins are fairly new and very comfortable. They are clean and have all the main amenities you'd expect including a fridge and cable tv. Temperature control worked well too. Our front porch faced the other cabins but you did still get views of some of the scenery. Location is great directly within... More

I really enjoyed staying at the Cedar Pass Lodge. The cabin was new, filled with sustainable eco-features, really charming with specially made pine furniture, spotlessly clean, and roomy. The temperature control system was quiet and worked well. Comfortable beds, great shower, loved everything about the place. Picturesque and totally comfortable at same time. Even has Wi-Fi. There is a group... More

We really like the cabins, they smell piney inside and seem nearly new and are spotless. The fridge, microwave in room and coffee maker are all as expected. Wi-fi was good. Recommend you ask for a cabin on the side facing the badlands as they have a back porch. Ours only had a front porch which we enjoyed but it... More

We only spent on night at Badlands National Park and a glad we stayed here. It's a wonderful location inside the NP, restaurant and gift shop on site. The main visitor center for the NP is right next door. The cabin was very cute and more spacious than I had imagined. We had 1 king bed and 1 queen bed.... More

The new cabins are very nice and spacious. It is really nice to have a microwave and mini-fridge in the room too. I think cabins 1 - 15 have a back porch while cabins 16 and up have a picnic table. There are picnic tables available for everyone though in the center drive area. We stayed in the end cabin,... More

We stayed in a duplex cabin which seemed very new. Beautiful vistas from our back porch. The shower was on the small side but doable. We spent 2 nights which allowed us one whole day to see the park. We saw lots of wild life that day. The lodge has a building which houses a gift shop, small grocery section... More

Maybe it’s because it’s relatively new. Maybe it’s because it’s well connected (TV, Wi-Fi, etc.). Maybe it’s because it’s clean. Or maybe it’s because the accommodations are spacious. The rooms/cabins may lack historical charm, but damn they were awesome. All I kept saying was, “wow.” Some are single cabins and some are duplex style. I was in a duplex cabin... More
