The Croker River is a waterway above the Arctic Circle on the mainland of Northern Canada in the western Kitikmeot Region, Nunavut. It is the largest river between Darnley Bay (in the Northwest Territories) and Coronation Gulf that flows into Amundsen Gulf. The Croker averages 55 metres (180 ft) in width.
It originates at Bluenose Lake then flows northward. It passes through a dolomite box canyon 8 kilometres (5 mi) from the coast, before reaching a triangular shaped delta 24 kilometres (15 mi) west of Clifton Point , and then entering Amundsen Gulf's Dolphin and Union Strait.
