You will need to book your room early because it does fill up quickly once it is open for the season. We arrived the first week and had booked 2 nights but they gave us an additional night since it was not into the full blown season, yet. We were lucky:) We stayed at the Cedar Pass Lodge for 3...

They aren't much to look at from the outside, but WOW, what a surprise once you go inside! The cabins at Cedar Pass are beautifully refurbished with gleaming wood floors, vaulted ceilings and comfortable beds. We were a little disappointed with the view, however. The cabins are situated between beautiful Badlands formations, but unfortunately the plant life has been allowed... More

The cabins at Cedar Pass Lodge have recently been refurbished and their newness combined with the awesome views of the Badlands is a refreshing change from the standard interstate-exit fare. Whoever designed the cabin interiors thoughtfully selected light-colored wood to eliminate the dreary, almost mournful feeling emanating from traditional dark-wood tones. The bathrooms are split, so you have dual sinks... More

The cabins are beautiful. Very spacious with high end amenities and a refrigerator, coffee pot, and microwave in the room. They also had tea which is a welcome addition for the non-coffee drinker. Front porch is cozy to sit on in the evening and read a book. The views of the Badlands are stunning as you are in the heart... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights here and LOVED it! Can't say enough about how impressed we were with the roomy "cabins" because they're lovely inside with all the natural woodwork and high end linens and amenities. AC worked great and there was Wi Fi. Everything was clean and well cared for. You get a free bag of ice... More

The new cabins are lovely, spacious, comfortable and perfect. Beds are very comfy. Cabins are clean and beautiful. Enjoyed sitting on the front porch and relaxing. Some cabins have back porch - they seem to be the most desirable, we were not lucky enough to score one of those, hopefully next time. We love the badlands and are so happy... More

Our one night in the cabin at Cedar Pass was great. The new cabins, made of pine logs, fit right in at the Badlands. The cabins are situated so that you have a view of the mountains from your front or back porch. We had a 2-queen cabin that had both front and back porches. Not all cabins had these.... More

Great locations right in the center of the Badlands. Quaint cabins, roomy, clean, and unbelievable views. The cabins are very close to their restaurant and gift shop. Food was very good, service a bit slow but very friendly staff, Was very pleased overall.

The cabins are in the midst of the Badlands National Park and near other attractions (Wall Drug, Minute Man Missile Site). These cabins are new and in great shape with pine interiors. Lots of fun to be in the middle of all that empty space of the park and be close to the Badlands as evening falls and few people... More

My wife and I had the opportunity to spend 4 nights in the new cabins at Cedar Pass Lodge and we were very pleased with the accomodations. The cabin we reserved had a king bed and a queen daybed. The bed was comfortable and the linens were soft and comfortable. The cabin was decorated with local flair and very clean.... More
