The Carr River is a river in the U.S. state of Rhode Island. It flows approximately 6 km (4 mi). There are three dams along the river's length.[1]


The river rises from Carr Pond in West Greenwich. It flows roughly due west past Tarbox and Capwell Mill Ponds to its confluence with the Big River.


Below is a list of all crossings over the Carr River. The list starts at the headwaters and goes downstream.

  • West Greenwich

Mud Bottom Brook is the Carr River's only named tributary, though it has many unnamed streams that also feed it.
