We loved our beautiful cabin which still smelled of pine!! It had the badlands mountains in the back and ranger programs at the camp amphitheater down the road. Fit comfortably with 2 queens and a futon which also made a queen bed. Bathroom was huge. We ate dinner at the lodge restaurant and ate microwave popcorn and hot chocolate for... More

We spent the night in cabin 110 at the Badlanda. The cabin was new, modern & comfy. We really appreciated that a microwave, fridge, coffee maker and small table were included in the lodging to conveniently enjoy simple meals. The front & back porches with the rustic chairs were a nice touch. We saw lots of birds & rabbits while... More

We spent one night in a cabin. We loved it the moment we walked in. We were greeted with a super clean room and it smelled wonderful. It was great staying within the Badlands National Park. Sitting on the porch chairs after dinner was very relaxing. Highly recommended!

The small cabins are wonderful. Decor is fun and perfect for the setting. But not too corny in terms of a log cabin. Large living area with refrigerator and microwave. Bathroom modern and clean. Porches on both front and back for viewing the mountains and such. Minor challenge was lots of small pillows on the bed that were super soft.... More

The cabins would probably get four stars on the location alone. As a bonus, the cabins are well appointed for park lodging and are a great base to explore the park. Even without a kitchen, they do have a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. Since the reviews of the lodge restaurant seem hit-or-miss, we decided to bring our own food... More

Absolutely loved our accommodations, coming from the Sylvan Lake cabins in Custer State Park--there simply is no comparison. Loved the hard floors that can be cleaned easily and definitely were clean! Tastefully decorated and just beautifully updated from what they seem to have been years ago. Loved to be able to sit in the front or back of the cabin... More

The way to experience a national park is to stay in the park. Sunrise and sunset set the tone and wrap the day. The cabins at Cedar Pass are excellent-roomy-completely redone. We spent 3 days at Cedar Pass-probably the right amount of time. We like to take pictures-so being in the park at the softer light times very important .We... More

Our foundation on a retreat to Pine Ridge stayed here this week. What great cabins in our national park. Little things like boot scrapers, soft towels and good wi-if. Your coffee cup or water glass are never empty at the cafe. The morning view is stunning!

The cabins are almost new & very nice , bed was great (comfortable) TV selection is very limited but with a... More

My husband and I stayed here as a part if a weekend getaway. The cabins are in there second year of use and they were great! The cabin was quiet and cozy. We were able to sit on the back porch and see wildlife and the Badlands. It's great to have such a nice place to stay within the park.... More
