South Cedar Natural Area
This 162 acre natural area is located along the Cedar River southeast of Cedar Rapids. Severely damaged during the 2008 flood, access to the primitive camping area of the park was closed, as was use of the original boat ramp in the area. While closed to vehicles, this area of the park is still open to hiking, fishing, etc. The newer public boat ramp, with adjacent parking has been repaired and reopened.  All 162 acres are open to hunting during season.

For hunting rules and regulations, please visit the Iowa DNR website.
