Cedar Pass Development Concept Plan and Environmental Assessment

The National Park Service (NPS) invites the public to review and comment on the proposed redevelopment of the Cedar Pass area, located in the north unit of Badlands National Park (the park). The 215-acre project area includes the Ben Reifel Visitor Center; park administrative buildings; park employee housing; the Cedar Pass Lodge and associated outbuildings and cabins; the operational support area; a maintenance area; and the park amphitheater and campground.

The park has prepared and is making available for public review a development concept plan / environmental assessment to evaluate effects of the project, in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 and section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA). The EA evaluates three action alternatives for future development and examines potential impacts on stormwater and floodplains, visitor experience and safety, cultural landscapes, historic structures, and paleontological resources.
