The Cedar River:
The Cedar River enters the county from the north (Blackhawk County) and exits to the south (Linn County), providing ample opportunities for an extended camping/fishing trip using canoes, kayaks, and fishing boats.

If you would rather hike or bike, then Benton County is the perfect destination with many miles of trails available. The
Cedar Valley Nature Trail (from Cedar Rapids to near Waterloo) crosses through Benton County near Urbana and offers more than 50 miles of quiet hiking and biking.  The Old Creamery Nature Trail traverses 15 miles of farm fields, quiet forested woods, and gorgeous wildflowers between Vinton-Garrison-Dysart.
