The Little River is a 10.4-mile-long (16.7 km)[1] river in southeastern New Hampshire in the United States. It is a tributary of the Lamprey River, part of the Great Bay and Piscataqua River watershed leading to the Atlantic Ocean.

The river rises in Nottingham as the outlet of Mendums Pond.[2] The river flows south, passing through Nottingham Lake, and then east, where it joins the Lamprey River near the town center of Lee.
