Cedar River National Grassland is a 6,717-acre property, a patchwork of units interspersed with private holdings. Part of the Grassland is also on Standing Rock Indian Reservation.

The land is a mix of open prairie and rolling hills. There are small streams crossing the property everywhere: some dry, some ephemeral, some always flowing.

Cedar River National Grassland is administered along with Grand River National Grassland out of a shared office in Lemmon, South Dakota.
