Located inside the Badlands National Park the Cedar Pass Lodge is without doubt the best place to stay (for those who aren't into camping). Anyone fancying an early start to catch a sunrise in this unique park, this is where you should be. The wooden cabins with front and back porches are very spacious and clean. Comfortable bed(s), and there... More

Separate cabins maintained in great shape. Ours had two queen beds, microwave, small refrigerator, coffee machine, TV and a nice front porch with two chairs. Furniture was made from wood and all real, it was in a way luxurious for a cabin. Great views from the porch. Inside the cabin is all natural wood, just beautiful! Would definitely go back.

Is this luxury? Depends on how you define the term. For us it was appropriately luxurious. The room had big furniture made from real hardwood logs. Mattress was extremely comfortable. There was a refrigerator and coffee pot, large bathroom with the essentials and oversize towels, and a front porch with big hardwood rockers. All of which was decorated with a... More

October is an excellent month to visit Badlands National Park, and this is definitely the place to stay. These are rustic but spacious cabins with breathtaking views of the ever-changing buttes and spires. There are Adirondack chairs on both the front and back porches so you won't miss a sight. The only complaint we had was the lack of suitable... More

We had an individual cabin in a location which gave us views of the stone formations. We watched the sun set and rise the next morning reflecting on the formations. The sky was so clear at night, millions of stars. Cabin smelled fresh and was very clean. It was nice to park in front of the door and we enjoyed... More

Cabins are solid and fairly modern,with decent shower, tv and nice front porch for watching the sun on the hills. Rabbits and birds frequent the areas right up to the cabins and are fun to watch. Very close to the Visitors Center and several hiking trails

Cedar Pass Lodge check in was very friendly and fairly quick. The cabins are only a couple of years old and roomy and comfy and the best place to stay when you visit the Badlands National Park, Wall SD and the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site. Our only disappointment was the cleanliness of the room. The floors were gritty. We... More

Highly recommend. Cute, updated cabins with great back porches to star gaze and look at magnificent views. Fridge, coffee maker, microwave, nice shower, flat screen tv and the park right outside your door. The Cedar Pass restaurant is good to.

Not many lodging options at Badlands National Park, but fortunately Cedar Pass Lodge is a wonderful experience at the Park. Looks like the cabins / rooms have been renovated recently, and they were very clean and "modern." Front and back porches allow for quiet (and spectacular) scenery viewing from your cabin. Good restaurant at Cedar Pass Lodge and almost reasonable... More

So although the Badlands were very scenic and my family and I had fun climbing the hills, walking the paths and seeing the big horn sheep and prairie dogs, we were surprised with how windy and the sheer volume of flies and mosquitos. The cabins were a nice place to take refuge after a long day of hiking. I liked... More
