The Slocan River is a 60-kilometre (37 mi) long tributary of the Kootenay River in the Canadian province of British Columbia. It is part of the Columbia River basin, as the Kootenay River is a tributary of the Columbia River. Its drainage basin is 3,290 square kilometres (1,270 sq mi) in area.
The Slocan River originates at the south end of Slocan Lake and flows south past Slocan and Winlaw to join the Kootenay River near Shoreacres, about halfway between Castlegar and Nelson. The route includes a mixture of broad flatwater, lazy meanders, gentle flows and, on the lowest section, a few rapids.
