The Warm Springs River is a river in northern Central Oregon, United States, which drains the east side of the Cascade Range and is a tributary to the Deschutes River. The watershed is approximately between Mount Jefferson and Timothy Lake and appears the northwestern and southwestern boundaries of the Warm Springs Indian Reservation coincide with the watershed. The headwaters are less than one quarter mile from the Wasco County and Clackamas County boundary (which follows the Cascade Crest). The river flows generally eastward, with occasional diagonals southeast or northeast. It joins the Deschutes River at river mile 83.7 (134.7 km upstream from its mouth).
