The Clear River is a river in the U.S. state of Rhode Island. It flows approximately 10.1 miles (16.3 km).[1] There are five dams along the river's length.[2]

Course[edit]

The river rises from a swamp southwest of Wallum Lake in Burrillville. From there, the river flows roughly east past the villages of Pascoag and Harrisville. At Oakland, the river converges with the Chepachet River to form the Branch River.
