Kapatagan is a 3rd class municipality in the province of Lanao del Norte, Philippines. According to the 2007 census, it has a population of 49,134 people.
Kapatagan is one of the 22 municipalities of the province of Lanao del Norte of Region X. It has a total land area of 25,048.41 hectares which include the area that is now being contested by the Municipality of Lala with an approximate area of 759 hectares.
On the southern and eastern sides of the locality are mountains which serve as natural barriers protecting the Municipality from typhoons. Offsetting the mountain is the presence of flat coastal lands and valley. Kapatagan has some rolling plains. It has five (5) major rivers that flow to Panguil Bay, namely: Maranding, Panoloon, Butadon, Kidalos and Balili . These rivers sometimes, especially during the rainy season, overflow causing floods resulting to destruction and even death of farm and land animals. The Cathedral Falls, Spring and Sta. Cruz waterfalls which are located at Barangay Cathedral Falls, Sta. Cruz and Waterfalls respectively, added to the beauty and wealth of the place, if properly developed by concerned agencies and the local government. At present, the spring supplies water into Poblacion and some neighboring Barangays.
The Municipality has a tropical climate. Dry season starts during the month of October and ends in June. Wet season starts in the month of July and ends in December.
The municipality is beginning to gain economic favor mainly due to the funds released by some international organizations like GEM. Many companies will plan to build some stores in Kapatagan to boost its economic growth like Julies Bakeshop and Vina Shopping Center.
