The Foraker River (Lower Tanana: Kwalana or Kotalhno) is a 60-mile (97 km) stream in central Alaska in the United States. It drains an area on the north slope of the Alaska Range on the south edge of the Tanana Valley southwest of Fairbanks. The Herron River is a major tributary.
The Foraker River issues from Foraker Glacier in Denali National Park and Preserve, northwest of Mount Foraker. It flows through the tundra to the north of the Alaska range in a generally northwest direction to Minchumina Lake near the village of Lake Minchumina.
