Bodri river rises in North Serayu Mountains from Mount Sundoro (3,150 m) at the village of Canggal, Candiroto District, Temanggung Regency. It also receives streams from the north slope of Mount Prahu (2,590 m) at Dieng Plateau, Mount Beser (1,036 m), Mount Kepiting (1,169 m) and also from Mount Ungaran (2,050 m) in Semarang Regency. The upstream in Temanggung Regency is called "Lutut River" (Sungai Lutut). The river discharges into Java Sea.

The river flows through two regencies: Temanggung Regency at the upstream and Kendal Regency in the middle and the downstream. In Temanggung Regency, this river traverses the districts of Candiroto, Bejen, and Gemawang. In Kendal Regency it crosses the districts of Singorojo, Patean, Pegandon, Gemuh, Cepiring and Patebon. The basin size (Indonesian: Daerah aliran sungai or "DAS") of Bodri until the river mouth is about 610.8 km2 (235.8 sq mi), divided into 5 smaller sub-DAS: Sub-DAS Lutut, Sub-DAS Logung, Sub-DAS Putih, Sub-DAS Blorong and Sub-DAS Bodri Hilir, comprising 4 regencies: Temanggung Regency (4 districts), Kendal Regency (12 districts), Semarang Regency (1 district) and 2 districts in the City of Semarang.[5]

The inhabitants along the Bodri River use the water for fisheries, either by traditional fishing or with nets. The high discharge of the river is also used for irrigation passing some dams, such as Juwero Dam at the border of Wonosari village, Pegandon District, with Triharjo village, Gemuh District, Kendal Regency.[6] In the river mouth area it has a port for the fishermen in the north coast with a fish auction place. There is a tourist attraction "Curug Guwung" at the upstream of Bodri River, at the Gunungpayung village, Candiroto District, Temanggung Regency[7]
