The Egg River is a 16-mile-long (26 km)[1] tributary of the Otter Tail River of Minnesota in the United States. It flows through a chain of lakes in the Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge and the White Earth Indian Reservation in Becker County, Minnesota.

Egg River was named from the birds' nests bearing eggs which are found along the stream.[2]
