“inn, cabins & camping”

Cedar Pass Lodge first opened for business in 1928, predating the establishment of Badlands National Monument by eleven years. Mr. Ben Millard, a local businessman and close friend of Senator Peter Norbeck, started with a dance hall that brought people from a hundred mile radius to listen to Lawrence Welk and similar bands. Millard expanded Cedar Pass Lodge to include the dining room, the Historic Cabins and a counter for curios. He enjoyed giving nightly geology talks to Lodge guests and was awarded the honor and title of the first "interpreter" in Badlands National Park. Ben passed away in 1956 and was afforded another National Park Service honor in 1957. Millard Ridge, the high ridge rising above the Cedar Pass area where the Lodge and park headquarters are situated is named in Ben's honor.

Great cabin. Newly renovated, clean, two porches with great views, close to the restaurant and gift center, short walk to the amphitheater (night sky program), and located actually in the badlands.

Stayed in a cabin. I was pleasantly surprised with it! Better than the pictures show. Very clean and up-to-date. Wifi was available but could be spotty.

The cabins are amazing! They were just redone in like 2012, and they've got the works. TVs, AC/Heat, coffee makers, etc. They're also really pretty-- rustic, but not tacky, and they're very clean, too.
