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

We only spent on night at Badlands National Park and a glad we stayed here. It's a wonderful location inside the NP, restaurant and gift shop on site. The main visitor center for the NP is right next door. The cabin was very cute and more spacious than I had imagined. We had 1 king bed and 1 queen bed.... More

The new cabins are very nice and spacious. It is really nice to have a microwave and mini-fridge in the room too. I think cabins 1 - 15 have a back porch while cabins 16 and up have a picnic table. There are picnic tables available for everyone though in the center drive area. We stayed in the end cabin,... More

We stayed in a duplex cabin which seemed very new. Beautiful vistas from our back porch. The shower was on the small side but doable. We spent 2 nights which allowed us one whole day to see the park. We saw lots of wild life that day. The lodge has a building which houses a gift shop, small grocery section... More

Maybe it’s because it’s relatively new. Maybe it’s because it’s well connected (TV, Wi-Fi, etc.). Maybe it’s because it’s clean. Or maybe it’s because the accommodations are spacious. The rooms/cabins may lack historical charm, but damn they were awesome. All I kept saying was, “wow.” Some are single cabins and some are duplex style. I was in a duplex cabin... More

We stayed for two nights and loved it. You could not ask for a better location. The rooms are large, clean and well decorated. Each room has a fantastic back porch. The staff is friendly, professional and attentive. If you decide to visit the park, make sure to stay at Cedar Pass. You would not be disappointed.

These are, by far, the best cabins I have ever stayed in at a National Park. By far. This is the first time that I felt that what I paid was close to what the room was worth. At other parks, I paid just as much to stay in way, way less. Keep in mind that I am comparing cabins... More

These cabins are very modern and comfortable. They have fridge, microwave, coffee pots and flat screen tvs. There are also hair dryers in them, The heat took a few moments to figure out - be sure and look for the instruction sheet to assist you in setting it correctly. They have porches and picnic tables. Great views and plenty of... More

Having visited the Badlands several times, I had never been able to make a reservation for the Cedar Pass Lodge and had always had to settle for the Badlands Inn. This time I was fortunate to arrive at the time a cancellation came in and I was able to change my reservation from the Inn to the Lodge. The cabin... More
