The Cowanesque River (Native American for "overrun with briars") joins the Tioga River soon after crossing from Pennsylvania into New York, near the borough of Lawrenceville, Pennsylvania.

In Tioga County, the Cowanesque Dam was constructed by the US Army Corps of Engineers to develop the Cowanesque Lake, a flood prevention lake regulating the valley.
