The Pine River is a river in the U.S. state of Rhode Island. It flows approximately 8 km (5 mi). There are no dams along the river's length.

Course[edit]

The river rises in the swamps near the U.S. Naval Reservation in North Kingstown, near Devil's Foot Road. The river continues due east to its confluence with Narragansett Bay at Quonset Point. The last mile of the river is almost entirely buried under the Naval Reservation at Quonset Point. During this last mile, the river provides water to Davol Pond.
