Camú River


Camú River

      river in north-central and northeastern Dominican Republic. Its headstreams rise in the Cordillera Central near La Vega. Other tributaries flow from the Cordillera Septentrional near Moca. The Camú, about 50 miles (80 km) long, flows generally eastward across the fertile La Vega Real region, joining the Yuna River just southeast of Pimentel. A network of canals branching out from the Camú River and its tributaries is used principally for irrigating rice.
