If you want to actually stay in the Badlands Nat. Park, and you are not a camper, or RV traveler, this is your only option. The location within the park and the new cabin were the two best attributes of our stay here in August, 2016. Our cabin was plenty large, was clean, and had a comfortable bed. Our cabin...

My wife and I first stayed at a Cedar Pass Lodge cabin in June, 2013. After that visit, I wrote a fine review of the facility for TripAdvisor. The cabins were new and very nice. And the folks at the lodge were very helpful and easy with which to deal. Since that visit, I have not written any further reviews,...

We were not impressed with this stay. The cabin was clean and practical, but very rustic, and ours did not have porch off the back so there were no views. We never did get any internet service and the restaurant was poor. When we walked in for breakfast, they told us there were not cooking omelettes and just about anything...

We had a wonderful stay at Cedar Pass. Couldn't have been happier with the accommodations, which were clean and comfortable and very cute, and of course the setting!! Waking up to sunrise in the badland rocks was incredible. Being right in the park meant we could start our exploring right away. So glad we chose this location rather than somewhere...

My family spent 2 nights at Cedar Pass Lodge. The cabins were amazing! I absolutely loved the Adirondack chairs on the porches, with a phenomenal view. South Dakota was in the midst of a heat wave, it was 102 degrees during our stay, and I wish that the cabin had been a little cooler. It was also nice being within...

Having stayed at several lodges in our National Parks, I was looking forward to this leg of the trip. We stayed in an individual cabin, which was great. Exposed wood throughout, including the furniture, along with all the modern amenities - quiet heat, microwave, refrigerator, television. The lodge is surrounded by beautiful rock formations of the badlands and right on...

Expensive, but totally worth the splurge. Cabins were beautiful and new. We didn't have a back porch, but we still enjoyed the view through the front window. Unfortunately, when we were there, the winds were a steady 30 mph and COLD, which forced us to spend more time indoors than we had planned on. Being inside the park was a...

The cabins are amazing but beware of their shop and restaurant (see separate review). Our cabin was so well maintained and equipped, it could have been new. I thoroughly recommend them for visiting the Badlands. But is is difficult to image how these amazing cabins can be accompanied by such a poorly run restaurant. Our cabin had a microwave so...

The spouse's first words were '' I thought you said there was a view!'' Well, there was, both in front of the cabin and out back; though we wished we'd had one of the cabins with back and front porches! The cabin was clean and comfortable, with a nice comfy mattress(es) and attractive wooden furniture, yes there was some dust/grit...
