Cedar Pass Lodge

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, along with his sister, Mrs. Clara Jennings, and later his son, Herbert, opened Cedar Pass Camp to provide services to tourists braving the area's dusty, undeveloped roads.

The cabin exteriors were designed to resemble the original cabins built in 1928 at Cedar Pass, using repurposed and energy saving efficiencies. The interiors are lined with fallen beetle kill pine from the Black Hills of South Dakota. The blue streaking in the wood is a trait left from the natural defense of the pine tree, its distinctive and makes each cabin truly one of a kind. Outfitted with custom-made, regionally handcrafted lodgepole pine furniture from Lonepine Lodgepole, a family owned Montana company, each cabin emits the comforts of American craftsmanship. Not forgetting the creature comforts mixed with environmental concerns the cabins have an ensuite private bath and shower with on demand hot water heater, low flow devices and compact fluorescent lighting. A delightful surprise to our guests are the large, handcrafted pine deck chairs placed on the decks to enjoy the spectacular views of the Badlands. The cabins are furnished with lodgepole pine Queen beds or a King bed and a Queen daybed.

The restaurant provides a variety of locally and regionally sourced dishes to guests for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They make their own fry bread each day for Sioux Indian Tacos - large fluffy fry bread topped with refried beans, buffalo meat (or vegetarian option of spicy black bean burger) topped with shredded lettuce, tomato, cheddar cheese and a sprinkling of black olives. Served with a side of salsa and sour cream the Sioux Taco is a large treat in the Badlands.
