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

We made a last minute reservation at the Cedar Pass cabins. Cabin was clean and cute. Big bathroom, comfy bed, frig, coffee maker, microwave. Magpies and bunnies are so brave, almost tame! We used this as basecamp to hike and drive through Badlands. We ate at the lodge, food was of standard diner quality but had variety of options and... More

We stopped to eat lunch and I must say I ate the best vegan burger ever. Very tasty, I hope to come back in the future and stay over. The server Artemesa was very attentive. My husband son and daughter in-laws are not vegan and they appreciated their meal also. Everyone had a happy experience.

The cabins at Cedar Pass Lodge are very well done. Nice finishes inside with excellent bedding. There are two porches - one facing east and one facing west, so that you can enjoy sunrise and sunset. There is also a microwave and mini fridge in the cabin, which is good in that the food at the restaurant is bland at... More

We enjoyed the cabin immensely. It was very comfy. We had two queen beds and a queen futon and three of us stayed comfortably for the weekend. We particularly enjoyed the back porch where we watched a spectacular sunrise. The gift shop was great, and the restaurant was good. We all had Sioux Tacos which were delicious. We could walk...

We booked this accommodation because, frankly, there seemed to be very little by way of alternatives. There is accommodation at Wall but we wanted to be on the doorstep of the park. And the lodges are certainly that. We had a lovely view from the back porch where we had nice steamer style seats and we were right in the... More

The cabins were rebuilt in 2013 to capture the simplicity of the original cabins and add the efficiency of modern construction. They look very campy on the outside, but were so cozy, clean and inviting on the inside. And waking up to the beauty of the Badlands right outside our front door was incredible! Our two youngest kids (8 and... More
