“Home”
Reviewed 24 February 2013

It's home. On the river daily. Whether ice fishing, washing animals, or watching the water...the Cedar River is my place. It changes as the seasons do and makes me smile all year around. Something to see constantly, and never has the same scenery twice.

“Cool spot”
Reviewed 1 January 2013

Looking forward to spending more time canoeing, fishing, hiking and exploring all along the river. Appears to be a river in stages of development since the flood several years ago. Looking forwarrd to some good additions.

“A river. Are you serious?”
Reviewed 29 September 2012

If you want to take a trip to see a river, you need a hobby. It's wet. It's big, and in 2008 it was angry and gave half the city a deep bath.

Don't eat any fish from it. Also don't swim in it. People go missing in it every year.

“River runs through Cedar Rapids”
Reviewed 27 September 2012

Well, the Cedar River runs right through the middle of our town. Splits the east side from the west side. Flooded in 2008, destroyed many homes and structures. Other than that, not much to say. It's a river, nothing much to do along it but fish.
