We were happy that we could adjust our travel plans in order to secure a reservation at the lodge midweek, as the lodge was booked both weekends of our vacation. There is nothing better than staying in a National Park, especially when you plan to photograph sunrise and sunset and participate in the NPS evening programs. Everyone at the lodge... More

For being the only accommodation in the park, this is a great place. I booked very early, shortly after the new yr, I knew there were only a handful on lodges. I requested a single renovated unit facing the badlands with a porch. I reconfirmed 1 month prior and that is exactly what we got. The cabins are very nice... More

If you are lucky enough to snag a cabin here during peak season then you must be doing something right...these cabins are gorgeous! They are new, with comfortable beds and linens. Very CLEAN. Everything you could need at hand, fridge, microwave, coffee, tea and chairs on front and back porches...OOh! And did I mention the most spectacular views you could... More

This is a popular choice. I checked daily for weeks hoping that someone would cancel and when I saw an opening I jumped. We would definitely return - the location inside the park is great, the cabin itself is super comfortable. Ours had one king and a queen, a microwave and fridge, a front and back porch with chairs on... More

Cedar Pass Lodge was an ideal place to stay in Badlands NP. New cabins were beautiful with comfy beds and very nice bathrooms. Ideal location close to visitor's center and the campgrounds where the ranger programs were held. Cabins also provided spectacular views of the park while sitting on the porch. We will definitely stay here for our next trip... More

I am not a cabin person so was a bit nervous. Let me say this place is fantastic. The cabin was huge and comfortable with all the amenities of home! Nice cool air conditioning, wonderful ceiling fans, porch with comfortable chairs overlooking the badlands, spacious bathroom with all the amenities of a five star hotel. We were between two other...

The cabins are recently renewed and equiped with a spacious bathroom. They are very clean and have airconditioning and a fridge. We only disliked the many flies, in the cabin and in the restaurant too. But you are in nature after all. In the main building, they have a shop and restaurant, with various meals. On the other side, the... More

We stayed in a cabin here for 2 nights during a visit to Badlands NP. The cabin was lovely...completely wood interior (walls, ceilings, floor), rustic furniture made from logs, large comfortable beds, table & chairs, food area (small counter, fridge, microwave), double sink washroom, small bathroom, front and back porches with chairs and picnic table in back. You're close to... More

We stayed in an individual cabin with 2 beds and bath. It was very comfortable and cozy. Kids loved the "cabin" atmosphere. It was great to be right smack inside the park and we met and talked to several of the other cabin dwellers. It was really nice to star-gave from the chairs on the front porch of the cabin.

When we were planning our trip to the Badlands and Black Hills I stumbled on Cedar Pass Lodge. They are just inside the East entrance..about five miles. The cabins were built two years ago and are they new inside and outside. Love the old style cabin but inside be prepared for something special. Flat screen TV, free Wi-Fi, a king... More
