The Rural Municipality of Ochre River is a former rural municipality (RM) in the Canadian province of Manitoba. It was originally incorporated as a rural municipality on November 18, 1901.[1] It ceased on January 1, 2015 as a result of its provincially mandated amalgamation with the RM of Lawrence to form the Rural Municipality of Lakeshore.[2]

The former RM is located south of Dauphin Lake and takes its name from the river and the community of Ochre River.
