The River Eamont is a river in Cumbria, England and one of the major tributaries of the River Eden.

The river is formed by the outflow from Ullswater in the Lake District, later augmented by Dacre Beck from the west and the River Lowther which carries the water from Haweswater north to the Eamont at Penrith. It reaches the Eden 3 miles east of Penrith.
