Over Cedar Pass Lodge
De Cedar Pass Lodge is de enige accommodatie die gelegen is in het prachtige Badlands National Park. Het Badlands National Park, ook wel 'Mako Sica' genoemd door de Lakota Indianen, is een bizarre omgeving van zacht zandsteen. De kleuren en de vormen van de Badlands komen beter uit in de schaduw dan in de felle zon, de Badlands zijn daarom op hun mooist in de vroege ochtend of laat in de avond. De lodge ligt op loopafstand van het visitor center. De 'huisjes' zijn eenvoudig maar comfortabel ingericht en voorzien van airco.

In het zuidwesten van de staat South Dakota gelegen, bekend om de paleontologische vondsten zoals fossielen van grote zoogdieren uit het Oligoceen tijdperk. Het landschap kenmerkt zich door de bijzondere canyons, bizar gevormde rotsen van zacht zandsteen en uitgestrekt, glooiend prairielandschap.
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 outside the park. Wish we could have stayed more than 1 night!
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 walking distance of the gift shop and on sight restaurant, they even sold ice at the main office which was a blessing during the heat! We are looking forward to a return trip, there is so much to see and do and the scenery definitely does not get old!
"Great Cabins, No Dinner"
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 the road through the park. The downside was that rather than the great dinner restaurant typical to a NP lodge, the policy here is "last seating at 4:30, we are out of here by 5:00". There is a bar down the road that serves a few sandwiches, but otherwise the nearest restaurant is 30 miles away. Unfortunately, we also witnessed very poor behavior from restaurant management. A woman who appeared to be the supervisor emerged from the kitchen and loudly declared that "no one leaves until the dishes are done", addressing two or three servers who were waiting for the end of shift. When one of the young ladies quietly objected, apparently saying that she had done dishes earlier in the day, the supervisor just got louder, repeated herself, and returned to the kitchen. A few moments later, a male supervisor came out, addressed the servers, again apparently met some objection, to which he loudly stated "I don't care, you are not hearing me" or something to that effect. We could hear this whole demeaning incident from the opposite end of the room. I also noted that the facility's Wi-Fi was down much of our visit. Not that we were there to be constantly connected, but the cash registers couldn't accept credit cards at one point and we couldn't get a receipt for our payment upon check out.
"Unique and beautiful"
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 great way to see the evening and morning hours, as well as a brief peek at the brilliant stars. We got up early and hiked the Notch Trail (highly recommended) before hitting the road to head home.
"Great cabins in an amazing location but ......"
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 my recommendation would be to take supplies with you and avoid the restaurant. The shop does sell some snacks etc. but, like the restaurant, it closes at 7pm!
