The Chockalog River is a river in the U.S. states of Massachusetts and Rhode Island. It flows approximately 4 km (2 mi). Its name is said to mean "fox place".

Course

The river is formed in Douglas, Massachusetts by the confluence of Greene and Cedar Swamp brooks. From there, it flows south to Burrillville, Rhode Island where it converges with Round Top Brook to form the Nipmuc River.

Crossings

Brook Road in Burrillville is the only crossing over the Chockalog River due to its short length.

Tributaries

The Chockalog River has no named tributaries, though it has many unnamed streams that also feed it.
