I loved the cabins at Cedar Pass Lodge! They are fantastic, newly done and clean and comfortable. I loved just sitting on the front porch soaking in the beauty of the Badlands, so peaceful and serene. Who wouldn't want to step out and see the Badlands from their cabins as their view? Stunning! Now my one complaint is the check-in process. 4:00 and does not start until 4:00 on the dot. So, naturally the line is out of control at 4. One sweet lady was working the one line and it was a slow go. And still, my cabin was not ready, but I received the keys and just waited at the cabin while they cleaned so it was not too bad. It certainly didn't take away from the wonderful experience at Cedar Pass Lodge. I would definitely recommend 100%!

Excellent "roughing it location" in the Badlands.

From reception to cabin to a breakfast sandwich, the Loge was super. Rooms exceed expectations: our's was a 2 queen rm on the west side. Rms on east side had a back porch. Spacious, small frig (that was cold) and a microwave. Pine logs and furniture a nice touch. 2 Sinks in bathroom and unexpected treat. Rms were quiet. The highlight: walking outside and catching a spectacular sunrise!

I had to cancel my reservation for my vacation at this place because I had emergency surgery. I called and talked with someone back in July for a September reservation. The person that I talked to said she would let them know. But, the cancellation never went through or got communicated. Cedar Pass Lodge decided to not believe that I canceled and charged me anyway. I did call and talked with someone at the number that was listed on my confirmation email and told her what had happened and they said this was not the first time that messages didn't get communicated. I was supposed to have been transferred to someone to help me but, I never was transferred. I would have brought many people with me next year when I can make the trip but, since this happened, will not consider this place.

What a view from the porch!

Cabin 104 has a great view from the back porch. Interior of the cabin was very pretty with nice decorator touches, very nice for a Park cabin ! The king size bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was clean and updated Great water pressure. We did note that the water had a very sulfur-y smell. It was very short walk to the lodge store and restaurant. Very reasonable walk to the amphitheater for a nighttime Ranger program. Would definitely stay again

Excellent Badlands Lodging

We stayed in a cabin with 2 queen beds, and it was probably the best National Park lodging we've experienced. The cabins are fairly new, with strong A/C and surprisingly good wifi. Our cabin had a bathroom with 2 sinks, with the toilet and shower in a separate room. The woodwork is lovely. The cabins face each other in two long rows, with seating on the front porches. You can park your car right in front of your porch. Some cabins also have seating in the back, facing the Badlands; I'm not sure how you book those cabins, but sadly we didn't get one. Duplexes have a shared front porch. The 4 pm check in time is strictly observed- do not expect to check in earlier. There are no ice machines, but each room gets one free bag of ice, and you can decide when to pick it up. You can walk to the Cedar Pass campground for night programs. We especially enjoyed seeing wildlife from our front porch- lots of rabbits, occasionally magpies and deer. Overall a lovely stay.
