After a 10 year absence, my family of six revisited Badlands National Park and stayed in the Cedar Pass Lodge cabins. All but one cabin were completely renovated in the last few years (one cabin remains "old school" in its original state) and they are really nice. Great, sturdy furniture. Comfy beds. Soft, fluffy towels. Gorgeous flooring. A nice sized... More

We stayed for two nights at the Cedar Pass Lodge in a cabin and loved it. The cabin is big and seemed to be quite new. Everything was very clean and the beds were comfortable. There is a fridge, microwave, AC and TV. Free wifi worked well. It's the perfect place to explore the Badlands NP.

Beautiful, brand new cabin with log furniture and wood floors. Our room also had a table and chairs with a small refrigerator and a microwave. It was very clean, with a comfortable bed and pillows. We slept very well. I also loved the back porch with chairs to sit and watch the stars, oh my the stars!! I have never... More

We just returned from a trip to South Dakota. We stayed two nights at Cedar Pass Lodge. As many have stated, the cabins are all new, with modern amenities but with an effort to look somewhat rustic. The lodge pole pine walls, ceiling, bedframes, chairs, etc. make for a very nice, cozy feel. What I liked most about these cabins... More

We chose Cedar Pass Lodge based on all the good reviews and location. The reviews were right. First, and most important, the cabin was very clean. The location is perfect if your visiting Badlands National Park. The cabin was modern and comfortable. The cabin is equipped with a microwave , small fridge, coffee maker, coffee, blow dryer, shampoo, and nice... More

We spent 3 wonderful nights in one of the renovated cabins. They have been completely upgraded, sadly so have the prices, but you are right smack dab in one of the most beautiful settings. Cabins are very comfortable, tv, microwave and fridge. I had booked a king bed, but didnt realize it included another bed. Didnt need for just two... More

This was a fantastic place to stay, right in the middle of the Badlands. We booked a renovated cabin well in advance and it was just fantastic. We were so surprised when we walked in and could have spent another night there very easily. Everything appeared very new and clean. We would haven't hesitation in staying again if we ever... More

The lodge (actually a collection of about 20 cabins) is located within the Badlands National Park, near the northern visitors center. All the cabins are either new or recently renovated. Each is a log cabin with a front porch and chairs. The cabins on one side of the complex appear to have an additional rear porch, which could provide a... More

These cabins are new and are well equipped with a refrigator and microwave. Nice shower and separate sink area. Front and back porch. Front porch faces driveway and other cabins. They provide you with one 10lb bag of ice each day should you need it. Front staff helpful. Restaurant leaves a lot to be desired and any other meal options... More

When I planned this trip the cabins in the Badlands were supposed to be a highlight. I made reservations about 6 months early, and the website and reservations page said nothing at all about views being different. They just gave me a choice of beds, so I checked king bed, for a 2-night stay. When we arrived we saw that... More
