North Rock is an offshore rock with geographical coordinates of 44°32′17″N 67°05′17″W / 44.53795°N 67.08805°W / 44.53795; -67.08805, located to the east of the North American continent near the boundary between the Gulf of Maine and the Bay of Fundy.

The rock is adjacent to the Canadian province of New Brunswick and the U.S. state of Maine. Its ownership has been disputed by both countries as part of the larger territorial and maritime boundary dispute surrounding Machias Seal Island. The disputed area is colloquially referred to as the "Gray Zone."
