Absolutely loved our accommodations, coming from the Sylvan Lake cabins in Custer State Park--there simply is no comparison. Loved the hard floors that can be cleaned easily and definitely were clean! Tastefully decorated and just beautifully updated from what they seem to have been years ago. Loved to be able to sit in the front or back of the cabin... More

The way to experience a national park is to stay in the park. Sunrise and sunset set the tone and wrap the day. The cabins at Cedar Pass are excellent-roomy-completely redone. We spent 3 days at Cedar Pass-probably the right amount of time. We like to take pictures-so being in the park at the softer light times very important .We... More

Our foundation on a retreat to Pine Ridge stayed here this week. What great cabins in our national park. Little things like boot scrapers, soft towels and good wi-if. Your coffee cup or water glass are never empty at the cafe. The morning view is stunning!

My husband and I stayed here as a part if a weekend getaway. The cabins are in there second year of use and they were great! The cabin was quiet and cozy. We were able to sit on the back porch and see wildlife and the Badlands. It's great to have such a nice place to stay within the park.... More

We spent just one day and night on Bed land national park and it was a great stop for us. The cabin was rustic, new, clean and very cozy. We had our dog with us and she was happy with the room too. They provide ice for free and have a small restaurant if u want to buy a sandwich... More

We stayed here in July 2014. The cabins had recently been updated and were quite nice. The room had a small refrigerator and microwave which was great since we could eat all our meals in the cabin. It's quiet and there is a porch in front and in back of the cabin. I would stay here again.

The cabins at Cedar Pass Lodge are very spacious and nice. All wood insides, big bathrooms, porches. My family had a good nights sleep and really enjoyed watching a raging thunderstorm from our porch. The restaurant is pretty good, but can be slow service. The Badlands are amazing and this is a good resting spot.

This was a great experience for us, like living during the frontier days. Beds were comfortable and the views waking up and going to be were amazing. We took in the ranger program and is something not to be missed as there are no "city lights" and you can see the beautiful stars and moon. My kids loved it!

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
