The Wonalancet River is a 7.6-mile long (12.3 km)[1] river located in the White Mountains of New Hampshire in the United States. Named after the 17 century Pennacook sachem Wonalancet, it is a tributary of the southern Swift River, part of the Bearcamp River / Ossipee Lake / Saco River watershed leading to the Atlantic Ocean.

The Wonalancet River rises in the heart of the Sandwich Range, in "The Bowl", a forested glacial cirque lying between Mount Whiteface to the west, Mount Passaconaway to the north, and Mount Wonalancet to the east. The river flows south, paralleled by the Dicey Mill Trail, out of the mountains into the communities of Ferncroft and Wonalancet. The river continues east into a forested valley and joins the Swift River three miles northwest of the village of Tamworth.
