The Stillwater River is an 11.5-mile-long (18.5 km)[1] side channel of the Penobscot River in Maine. From its source (44°57′59″N 68°38′45″W / 44.9664°N 68.6458°W / 44.9664; -68.6458 (Stillwater River source)) in Old Town, the Stillwater runs 2.3 miles (3.7 km) northwest along the northeast side of Orson Island, the site of the Penobscot Indian Reservation. It then runs 9.2 miles (14.8 km) south along the west sides of Orson and Marsh islands, over three dammed falls. The stream rejoins the main stem of the Penobscot in Orono.
