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.

"The Cedar Pass Lodge Holds Up Well"
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, although I have stayed in the Lodgeâ€™s cabins in the early fall of 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. I am preparing to leave for the Badlands again in three days. Unfortunately, this trip is during the time that the Cedar Pass Lodge and its cabins are closed for the late fall through early spring season. In each of my visits, however, the cabins have met the expectations set after our June 2013 visit. The level of service has always been good, although perhaps not quite as good as it was that first visit. Clearly, much depends on who is working at the front desk, how busy they are, and so on. That notwithstanding, the quality of the cabins holds up well! After my two visits in 2013, several additional cabins were constructed. I have stayed in a couple of those over my subsequent trips. All measure up well. They are clean and nicely maintained. A real advantage to the cabins during the summer season is their location in the context of a small amphitheater about one-quarter mile to the south and the evening programs offered there by the Park Service. Additionally is the Park headquarters only several hundred yards north of the cabins. The Cedar Pass Lodge is a great place that offers much to the Badlands National Park visitor. I have never been disappointed.
"Rustic cabins, no working internet, and a poor restaurant. Disappointing for the cost!"
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 else because they were short staffed. Then they overcharged us for the breakfast, which the woman who cashed us out did nothing about. I complained at the desk and the clerk promised to give us a small refund for the lack of internet and breakfast issues, which I appreciated. When it didn't happen on my credit card, I called and had to convince the manager to give me my refund. Thank goodness I had the name of the clerk and the statement that indicated I should receive the refund, written by the clerk. I had to fax this to the manager. I don't think I would stay again, though I am glad we stayed overnight in the Badlands so that we could see more of the area.
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.
