CEDAR LAKE (Brazoria County). Cedar Lake, a teardrop-shaped lake under one mile in diameter, is near the Galveston county line nineteen miles east of Angleton in east central Brazoria County (at 29°12' N, 95°05' W). Before the construction of the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway in 1948, the lake was fed by Cedar Lake Creek and the San Bernard River and drained into the Gulf of Mexico.
