I was pleasantly surprised by the Cedar Pass Lodge! Since there weren't many options for lodging near Badlands National Park, we decided this was our best bet. I wasn't expecting the cabins to be so new-- they had that fresh wood smell and everything. They were exceptionally clean, and the beds were comfortable. All of the wooden, rustic furniture was...

My husband and I were on a road trip for our honeymoon and stayed one night at the Cedar Pass Lodge back in August. This was by far my favorite cabin of the whole trip. These cabins are recently updated and are very clean. The beds were comfortable and the cabin was minimally decorated so you get that rustic feel... More

We stayed two nights in September in a cabin with two queen beds. Everything looked brand new, nice rustic style furniture, comfortable beds, nice bathroom, and best of all front and back porches, with lovely view. Great location to explore the park, glad we had two nights. Ask for a stand alone cabin (not duplex style) on the east side,... More

We spent two nights in the Cedar Pass Lodge in early October near the end of the season. We had heard they were rustic, but were actually on a par with a nice hotel room- comfortable bed, nice linens and towels, refrigerator and microwave, etc. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. A little pricey, but was conveniently located inside... More

I agree with many of the reviews; the recently refurbished cabins are very nice. Clean rooms with comfortable beds and good water pressure; and the back porches with chairs face away from the parking loop in front of the cabins. We had a couple rabbits visit us, and saw robins, blue birds, and meadowlarks. And, to be in the Badlands,... More

We spent three nights at Cedar Pass Lodge in Badlands National Park. The cabins are very clean, smell wonderfully of fresh wood (all wood used is from Montana) and there is a microwave and small refrigerator. We were there on the last three days of their season. They closed after breakfast on October 15. Since it was so late in... More

We stayed 4 nights at Cedar Pass Lodge. The quality of the cabins exceeded my expectations. We were in South Dakota for 2 weeks and this was the nicest place we stayed. The bed was extremely clean and comfortable. We enjoyed having a glass of wine on the deck looking at the beautiful scenery. I wish the units had cooking... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay at Cedar Pass Lodge in one of the new duplex cabins. Our cabin included a pine King Bed with very nice linens, and was equipped with a microwave, refrigerator, good shower, pine table with 2 pine chairs, and hair dryer. The back door opened onto a porch with chairs to... More

These new eco cabins were a delight to stay in. Lined with beetle kill pine and outfitted with lodge pole pine furnishings made the ambience perfect! Even the towels were bamboo. Perfect location for exploring Badlands National Park.

We spent 2 nights at Cedar Pass Lodge. Rustic cabin was very nice and clean. Plenty of room for a family. Great sunrise and sunset of the stone wall was beautiful. It was so quiet. We were there at the end of the season. The little gift shop/store didn't have much to snack on, and the restaurant well, your choices... More
