We stayed two nights here while visiting the Park. The individual cabin we stayed in was newly refurbished, comfortable and clean. Views off the front porch were OK--there's a nice butte nearby, but the dirt road and other cabins across the way obscures it partially. Out the back was better--a more panoramic view of the surrounding buttes in the distance.... More

A Cedar Pass Lodge cabin is an excellent place to stay in the Badlands. Conveniently located and provides flavor of the area. The cabin is beautiful, the furniture is period appropriate, authentic and comfortable. Within walking distance to the Lodge for meals and shopping needs.

We stayed here for 3 nights, whilst photographing in the Park. The location is superb, and early booking is recommended as there are only 20 rooms in the Park itself. We were greeted at Reception very warmly by the lovely German girl there. We stayed in a cabin, which was lovely, but had not been cleaned properly. The cabin itself... More

We stayed at Cedar Pass Lodge before the reconstruction of the new cabins, and we can handily say that they did a fantastic job creating luxury in a cabin. We loved the rustic charm of the old cabins, and all of that was brought to the new cabins. Cabins on the east side of the gravel road have decks built... More

We stayed at the Cedar Pass Lodge for two nights, both in a 2 Queen bed cabin, and were delighted with the quality and facilities of the cabins. The interior is totally refurbished, furniture looks handcrafted and is made of wood. Beds were very comfy and bathroom was a good size with nice toiletries and towels provided. Aircon was excellent,... More

We spent one night at Cedar Pass Lodge - and wish we had stayed longer! The updated cabins are very nice. We rented 2 cabins, a duplex and a single, and found them both very comfortable. The temps were in the 90s and we had no trouble keeping the cabin cool. It was so nice to sit on the back... More

We had 2 nights here at the end of July and the room was superb. Updated and you can tell. Lovely smell of wood. Beds comfy and great to sit outside and watch the wildlife, great to see bluebirds up close. Really convenient for night ranger programme and for star watching. The only downside was the wifi in our room... More

Cedar Pass Lodge cabins were our children's favorite place to stay out of six National Parks we visited on our trip. Rabbits running around outside were a hit. Enjoyed the drive to and from Wall Drug Store and Notch Trail hike.

We are a family of 6 that stayed in the sister property to Cedar Pass Lodge, The Badlands Inn Motel. It provided 2 beds and a standard bathroom and a fridge, which was convenient.

We stayed at the Lodge with our family of four plus my parents and we all raved about the experience. The cabins are perfect for folks who are not interested in rustic camping but enjoy more comfortable "gl-amping" experience. The cabins are beautiful, incredibly comfortable, environmentally considerate and have breath taking views. There is a great shop with Native American... More
