The Crow River is a river located in Kahurangi National Park in the West Coast Region of New Zealand. It arises in the Arthur Range and flows south-west and then north-west into the Karamea River.[1] The river may be named after the South Island kōkako, sometimes called the orange-wattled crow.[2]

Brown trout can be fished in the river.[3]

A backcountry hut is available for trampers near the junction with the Karamea River.[4]
