We spent just one day and night on Bed land national park and it was a great stop for us. The cabin was rustic, new, clean and very cozy. We had our dog with us and she was happy with the room too. They provide ice for free and have a small restaurant if u want to buy a sandwich... More

We stayed here in July 2014. The cabins had recently been updated and were quite nice. The room had a small refrigerator and microwave which was great since we could eat all our meals in the cabin. It's quiet and there is a porch in front and in back of the cabin. I would stay here again.

The cabins at Cedar Pass Lodge are very spacious and nice. All wood insides, big bathrooms, porches. My family had a good nights sleep and really enjoyed watching a raging thunderstorm from our porch. The restaurant is pretty good, but can be slow service. The Badlands are amazing and this is a good resting spot.

This was a great experience for us, like living during the frontier days. Beds were comfortable and the views waking up and going to be were amazing. We took in the ranger program and is something not to be missed as there are no "city lights" and you can see the beautiful stars and moon. My kids loved it!

This place is far away from any large town. It's great for seeing the night sky. The cabin was clean and there was a fridge so you could make simple meals in your room. The rooms on the east side were probably better as they seemed to have an outside spot to sit behind the cabin rather then where your... More

This cabin was nice enough; decently comfortable and certainly adequate. We were traveling with friends who were in an RV and their campground was an easy walk, which was nice for all of us. The problem with accommodations inside the parks are they are too expensive for what you get and the dining options are pretty awful. Fellow travelers in... More

We stayed at the Cedar Pass Lodge while visiting Badlands National Park. We had a very well-appointed and modern private cabin with a nice front porch for sitting and looking at nature. The cabin had two large beds and everything that you need on a visit to a national park, including parking right at your door. And you are inside... More

We spent one night here in October. The cabins are fairly new and very comfortable. They are clean and have all the main amenities you'd expect including a fridge and cable tv. Temperature control worked well too. Our front porch faced the other cabins but you did still get views of some of the scenery. Location is great directly within... More

I really enjoyed staying at the Cedar Pass Lodge. The cabin was new, filled with sustainable eco-features, really charming with specially made pine furniture, spotlessly clean, and roomy. The temperature control system was quiet and worked well. Comfortable beds, great shower, loved everything about the place. Picturesque and totally comfortable at same time. Even has Wi-Fi. There is a group... More

We really like the cabins, they smell piney inside and seem nearly new and are spotless. The fridge, microwave in room and coffee maker are all as expected. Wi-fi was good. Recommend you ask for a cabin on the side facing the badlands as they have a back porch. Ours only had a front porch which we enjoyed but it... More
