There are three rivers named Eagle River in the U.S. state of Alaska.
Eagle River is a small town north of Alaska's biggest city, Anchorage. The small town was established many years ago.
Eagle River 61°19′43″N 149°44′19″W / 61.32861°N 149.73861°W in Anchorage flows northwest from Eagle Glacier to Eagle Bay in Cook Inlet, 15 km (9 mi) northeast of Anchorage. Its Dena'ina name was Yukla-hina. The small town, part of the Municipality of Anchorage, Eagle River is named after this river. The river runs through Eagle River, with some overpasses being made on the roads in order to cross the river. Although most of the rapids are only Class 2, there are a couple of companies offering river-rafting rides through a small portion of the river.
A second Eagle River 58°31′37″N 134°49′18″W / 58.52694°N 134.82167°W flows southwest from a lake at the base of a different Eagle Glacier to a bay on Favorite Channel, 32 km (20 mi) northwest of Juneau. Early miners called this river Glacier River and Sitk Creek.
A third Eagle River 56°09′49″N 131°35′51″W / 56.16361°N 131.59750°W flows northwest 13 km (8 mi) from Eagle Lake to a different Eagle Bay, 8 km (5 mi) southwest of the head of Bradfield Canal, near Wrangell.
