CEDAR LAKES. The Cedar Lakes, a group of shallow connected lakes, are located just south of the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, beginning in Brazoria County two miles west of the Matagorda county line and continuing east for six miles to the mouth of the San Bernard River on the Gulf of Mexico (at 28°51' N, 95°30' W). The lakes measure just over a mile at their widest point. The area is brackish to saltwater marsh with a surface of mud and sand that supports grasses.
