We were so glad we decided to begin our South Dakota adventure by staying in a cabin at Cedar Point Lodge. First, the location is perfect--- a view, jackrabbits in your yard, the restaurant and store nearby and easy access to going either direction on the loop. Next, the cabin itself was beautiful! Very new, clean, so attractively decorated with... More

We stayed here for three nights while exploring the badlands. The duplex cabin we had was brand new, very spacious, had great views and tons of wildlife right outside the back door. There were porches and seating both in front and back and you could walk to the lodge restaurant/gift shop and the park visitor center. Restaurant food was reasonable... More

We throughly enjoyed everything about the park and our stay here. The cabins were roomy, clean and quiet. My son described it as the best cabin ever! It was close to the store, ranger talks and ranger hikes. I would recommend these cabins to anyone. You will not be disappointed. Only regret was staying only one night!

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.

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
