We loved the cabins at Cedar Pass Lodge. It is clear they have been renovated very recently. The cabins were very clean and comfortable. Was great to spend a night right in the Badlands and wake up to the beautiful scenery. The restaurant near the lodge was also good - we had dinner and breakfast at the restaurant. Would definitely...

All of the lodging at Cedar Pass Lodge is in cabins. Some are renovated; our appeared virtually new. Rustic pine walls and furniture. Pine lounge chairs on front and back porch; really a cool way to relax. Comfortable beds, mini-frig, coffee makers, dual sinks in the bath, really nice cabin. BUT, it seems they aren't being maintained well. The faucet... More

We stayed for two nights. Right in this unique little National Park. Really liked it. The cheapest place we stayed during our 3 week stay in the USA. Really comfortable, good air con, nice bathroom. This really is very good value. It is on the sort of Cedar Pass shop, restaurant, gift shop complex but at the back. You have... More

If you want to sleep in the Badlands this is a great place to camp. The only thing I did not like was the shower area didn't have anywhere clean and dry to put a towel and fresh clothes while you shower. Other than that the scenery was amazing! My advice would be to get there at dark and then... More

Good design - three of use but enough space for an overnight (or two). Air con worked OK in our cabin and we squatted a couple of flies but that goes with the territory. Enjoyed sitting on the porch and watching the bunnies! Ben on the desk was really friendly and happy to give area info and advice. Shame about... More

We were fortunate to stay for 2 nights in a renovated cabin at Cedar Pass Lodge. The cabin was charming-inside and out. The beds were comfortable, the linens fresh and clean. The view from the porch-front or back-was pretty spectacular, of course. I have 2 minor points, which prevent me from giving this property an excellent rating. The first concerns... More

We loved this cabins. Fully renovated and clean. Good beds and shower. Loved to sit on the back porch watch the rabbits and birds and squirrel. And at night the clear stars. Perfect place to stay and then explore the badlands the next day

We stayed a few years ago in this cabins. But now they are renovated. Beautifull wood cabins with comfortable beds. Television,microwave,,and refrigarator. We love to sit on the porch at the back of the cabin. Watching beautifull birds,squirll and rabbit and in the evening the bright stars. The cabins are perfect.Great shower and everything looked brand new and clean.

First I have to mention the flies are the ordinary house flies and not biting black flies mentioned in another review. That said, they are unavoidably everywhere. We stayed one night in duplex cabin 101. Fantastic view, beautiful decor, great porch, clean and very comfortable bed. Due to the restaurant reviews, we chose to eat in our room utilizing the...
