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.
"Really enjoyed our duplex cabin!"
We stayed in both halves of a duplex cabin in October. The park was a lot quieter (we were told) than in high season, and the area was wonderfully quiet. The cabins are nice if rustic, with ceiling fans, TV (limited channel choice) and wifi (albeit slow). But for me, the highlight was he comfy chairs with view of the dark night skies. I have never seen the Milky Way with my own eyes like that. Its also in walking distance to the visitor's center. We knew dining choices were very limited, so we brought our own meal with us.
"Camping without roughing it"
My mom's favorite quote is, "My idea of roughing it is slow room service." While I'm a bit more adventurous, I really dislike camping. I wasn't impressed with the selection of area hotels so thank God for Cedar Pass Lodge. The cabin we stayed in was perfect! It was clean, large, airy, and most importantly, had indoor plumbing and a bed. I'm the type of person who likes to hike during the day but then enjoys a hot shower and a soft bed. Staying in this lovely cabin in the middle of the Badlands met all of those requirements. On our first night, we were greeted by six deer just lounging and snacking on the grass outside one of the cabins. It was utterly peaceful and lovely...just a fantastic experience overall!
We stayed in a queen bed cabin for two nights and loved it. They have been recently built or redone. Nicely decorated, spotless, plenty of room, coffee maker, micro and frig. Sitting deck in front and back. Pull up parking. Really enjoyed staying in park so we could get up to see the sunrise and experience sunsets/dark sky at night. Highly recommend. Book early!
"In Badlands NP: Best national park cabins anywhere!"
We LOVED the cabins at Cedar Pass Lodge in Badlands National Park. After experiencing some excessively modest cabins at other parks, this one was a delight. The cabins are newly remodeled, clean, spacious and well-equipped (including a mini-fridge and a coffee-maker). They have not just one, but TWO porches, front and back. From the back porch, which had wooden chairs, we had a fabulous view of the Badlands mountains, especially at sunset (see attached photo). They are ideally located, next to the Visitor Center and the store (with restaurant), and right in the middle of the park.
"Much better than expected!"
We had read some reviews that were less than flattering about this property and restaurant. However, we have nothing but good things to say! The location can't be beat and the cabins are beautiful with comfortable beds and linens. The cabins have recently been renovated (which may account for some of the previously negative reviews), and they are clean, comfortable, roomy, and a wonderful place to relax and unwind. The bathroom is sufficient although compact and the amenities above-average. There is a picnic table outside as well as Adirondack chairs on the porch to enjoy the sunset and moonrise, as well as the out-of-this-world views of the Badlands rock formations. The room also had a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker, which we appreciated. Some of the cabins are stand-alone, others are duplexes - we requested a single cabin and appreciated the privacy. Unless you drive out of the park to the small town of Interior (only a few miles away), your dining options are limited to the restaurant near the road. While not fine dining, we found it more than adequate - just be aware of its strict open and closing times. While we were there they had an excellent salmon dinner special that was hearty and well-prepared as well as reasonably priced. Sometimes the service was a little slow - it was the end of the season and they appeared short-staffed, even though peak season was over. However, at times the salad bar dwindled down to precious few choices before it was refreshed. Breakfasts were large portions and well prepared. They serve some beer and wine - not an extensive or top-shelf list but adequate, especially after a day of hiking. The attached store and gift shop has some grocery options if you want to prepare meals yourself. Really enjoyed our stay here!
