The cabins were huge and comfy they had a large bathroom and plenty of room to move about! I would defiantly reckons to anyone who wants to visit the badlands. The food isn't great there but it's bearable. They are handicapped accessible for anyone wondering

The cabins at Cedar Pass are located in an area behind the restaurant and gift shop. The cabins are well air conditioned, and are fairly roomy. They have been remodeled to include wood furniture made from local woods by local craftsman. A small porch on the front has two wooden chairs. We spent some time in the evening sitting out... More

While touring the badlands, we stopped at Cedar Pass Lodge restaurant for lunch. There was a considerable wait, but the place was very busy, so it was expected. We were seated and drink orders were taken. The food order took quite a bit of time however. The gift shop within the Lodge is very nice and worth the stop alone... More

This is the only in-park accommodations (other than camping). Your "room" is a rustic looking cabin located close to the Interior/south entrance, adjacent to the gift shop/restaurant (where you check in), and a short walk to the Ben Reifel Visitor Center. The lodge is on the Badlands Loop Road for easy access to all of the park's sites and trails.... More

We have stayed at many National Park lodges over the years and found the cabins at Cedar Pass to be particularly pleasing, especially considering the affordable price. The decor is fresh and attractive and the setting is great. What a treat it was to sit on the porch to watch the beautiful scenery and wildlife, and to make the short... More

The cabins have are all new and beautiful. We stayed in a "duplex" and hardly heard the people next to us. There is something magical about the Badlands in the evening when the sun starts to set. Incidently I left my Ipad. When I called they were very helpful in locating it and returning it to me (I thought it... More

I waffled on this one. Was the price really worth it for a one night stay? It ended up that I couldn't get a booking when I was ready to reserve my trip. I booked lodging nearby that would have been fine for my family, one that we stayed at 7 years ago. I checked again one week prior to... More

We stayed at the Cedar Pass Lodge after spending 2 nights tenting in Custer State Park. Needless to say we were ecstatic when we walked into our lodge on the final night of our trip. The room was large with a huge comfy bed and super nice bedding. It was air conditioned and had a fridge and microwave. The only... More

My family of four (two kids) stayed in one of the cabins for four nights and loved it. They were clean and comfortable and offered great views of the park from the front porch (not to mention great views of the jack rabbits that ran around outside all the time). The bathroom was also convenient, with a separate shower/toilet room... More

We try to eat sandwiches when traveling as much as possible, but we forgot to buy more bread and we're going to have to eat here or wait for hours to get to somewhere. We opted to eat here and share a few meals. We had two of the regular Indian tacos, a vegetarian one, and a burger. It was... More
