River Summary: The Cedar River is a 338-mile long river located in the north-central part of the United States, primarily in the state of Iowa. It flows from its headwaters in Dodge County, Minnesota, through southern Minnesota and northern Iowa, before emptying into the Iowa River near Columbus Junction. The Cedar River is a principal tributary of the Iowa River and a significant source of water for the region. It has been used for agricultural irrigation and drinking water for many years. The river is also home to several reservoirs and dams, including the Cedar River Reservoir, which was created by the construction of the Cedar River Dam in the early 20th century. The Cedar River is popular for recreational activities such as fishing, boating, and camping.
