Had a great lunch in the Lodge. Rene, the lunch attendant was so friendly, I swear the visitors and staff came in to see her especially. But the food was wonderful as well. Sebastian made an awesome Famous Indian Taco. The fries were addicting snd club sandwiches excellent. Badlands is a great experience, made greater by the excellent food and friendly service.

Having read some of the reviews, I wanted to point out that only half of the cabins have a back porch, while all have a front porch. Unfortunately, the front porch looks out across the courtyard to the other cabins ( and probably right into your car, as that is where you park). Some of the cabins without back porches have a picnic table behind their cabin, but ours ( and several others) did not. The price for the cabins is the same, so the amenities should be the same. Also be warned that ice is only available at the restaurant when it is open ( 8am - 6pm when we were there at the very beginning of the season).

The cabins were rustic but updated and clean. We had a front and back porch so could watch sunrises and sunsets. Cabin included refrigerator and microwave which will be useful. The down side is the Resturant at the lodge. Limited choices and at the time we were there they didn’t even have some of their choices. So might want to bring your own food.

The cabins were modern with wifi and big screen TV, microwave, coffee maker, etc. Nice and roomy...very rustic decor. Rabbits all around the porch area. Rocking chairs on the porch so you can enjoy the scenery. The night sky was absolutely incredible. Quiet at night. The restaurant wasn't much and you don't have many options elsewhere without a long drive. A bit expensive when compared to other facilities/lodges in Badlands/Black Hills/Keystone.

These small cottages were a nice surprise. Clean and updated with a cute porch and perfect place to unwind at the end of a day in the park. Is centrally located to some sights. We did not eat here so can't comment on options. There was large TV and comfortable beds. It had a decent bathroom but very tiny shower which needed better lighting (my only real complaint). Would stay here again.

I booked a cabin for two nights several months ago and almost changed our plans when I realized that the area is a true food dessert. I'm a vegetarian and fussy about food and I could tell in advance that there wouldn't be anything acceptable at the restaurant on the property or in Wall or Interior. Since we were driving, we decided instead to go to Trader Joe's and get some frozen food for dinner, bring cereal, yogurt and fruit for breakfast and sandwich stuff for lunch and it worked out perfectly. The cabins are very comfortable: comfortable beds, small fridge, microwave and very good a/c. The best part is the front and back porch on each cabin with great views, especially sunrise and sunset and convenience to the trailheads where we planned to hike. We could have easily spent another night. It was quite hot, so we hiked early in the day and near dusk and spent the rest of our day on the back porch in the shade, just relaxing with beer and wine. They sell beer, wine, a few packaged food items and ice cream bars at the gift shop. Note: despite what we were told, the cabins do not have Keurig coffeemakers. Since we love coffee, I called ahead to ask and we brought Keurig pods. They have Hamilton Beach single cup coffeemakers that produced extremely weak coffee that was not good. fortunately, I brought an Aeropress as a back up and some espresso roast coffee, so I was able to boil water in the microwave and make very good coffee that we enjoyed on the back porch. Note also, that there are no kitchen utensils other than paper coffee cups, so we brought paper plates, bowls and plastic silverware, knives, can opener, all of which allowed us to avoid the restaurants. Another plus is that the main building where you chem in and gift shop require masks because it is in a national park. Apparently, everyone else in SD think the pandemic is over, because elsewhere no one wears masks and there is no social distancing.

We stayed in a cabin for two nights and really enjoyed it. The cabin was lovely as were the furnishings. Large bathroom, fridge, microwave, coffee maker and even a new tv. Beds were comfortable, toiletries and hair dryer. Heat was quiet. Wifi available. It was wonderful to be right in the park and a few minutes drive from trails. We spent time in the chairs on the porch and saw a number of deer, rabbits and assorted birds. The young woman in the office was very helpful and went out of her way to provide us with comforts such as ice and extra coffee. We ate once at the cafe for the Indian fry bread taco. Our order was taken and paid for at the door by a rather gruff but very efficient man. Food was okay and reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend staying here. I booked about a year in advance. Great value.

We stayed in a small cabin at Cedar Pass (slept two), and it was just about perfect. The room had a nice bed, a table and chairs, a microwave, and mini fridge. We spent most of our time on the comfortable back porch. It had a wonderful view of the Badlands wall, and was visited frequently by deer, rabbits, and several types of birds. The restaurant and store were a short walk away, but the cabin still felt remote.

Cedar Pass Lodge fully met my expectations. The cabin was lovely. We had a single cabin with two queen beds. The furniture was adorable. The room is large. I wish they had a washer and dryer somewhere on the property but that is my only complaint. I had read in past reviews that the AC was not cool enough but we were fine. They did say they had wifi but we were never able to get it for more then a minute or two. It was so nice to sit on our porch and watch the sunset and sunrise.

We stayed for one night in a cabin with two queen beds. The furnishings were modern and attractive, the room was very clean, and getting to stay inside the park was a treat. We enjoyed watching deer and rabbits from our front porch! Check the hours the restaurant is open or bring your own food.
