The Kotaneelee River originates in the Yukon Territory, just west of the Northern Territories border, on the eastern slopes of the La Biche Range, at an elevation of 1,600 meters (5,200 ft). It flows west into the Northern Territories, then south-east between the La Biche Range and the Northern Kotaneelee Range. It turns again eastwards and separates the Northern and Southern Kotaneelee Ranges. After receiving the waters of the Chinkeh Creek, it turns south and flows parallel and to the west of the Liard Range of the Franklin Mountains. It turns around Mount Pointed and heads east, passing north of Mount Martin and south of Fisherman Lake before it flows into the Liard River, 15 kilometers (9.3 mi) upstream from Fort Liard, at an elevation of 230 meters (750 ft).
