Cedar River Flow - Kayak Trip / Canoe Trip

Report Type: Destination Report
Nearest City: Indian Lake, NY
Difficulty: Easy


The Cedar River Flow is a small wilderness river in the central Adirondacks. The Moose River flows into it, and is stopped by a small dam with a bridge over top of it at the Cedar River campsites. These campsites are free to the public, and have no running water or flush toilets, but the closeness to the road makes them suitable for families with children. For the more adventurous, there are sites scattered around the main flow, which are accessible by boat only. These sites are well maintained, and only lightly used.

The whole area has an extremely remote feel to it, because the main road is over 5 miles from the campsite, and the road leading into the campground is dirt. Even though it is very well kept, I would recommend leaving the Corvette at home.

This area is one of my favorite places to paddle and camp because of its wonderful scenery and the feeling of being in the wilderness, while not being that far from civilization in case of emergency.


Take NYS RT 30 North through the village of Indian Lake, turn left on Cedar River Rd, follow for about 8-10 miles, campsites are on the left.


Excellent put in at campground, upstream of dam. Downstream, the Cedar River is technically Class 2-3 whitewater.
