The North Fork Crooked River is a tributary, 46 miles (74 km) long, of the Crooked River in the U.S. state of Oregon. Beginning in the Ochoco National Forest and the Ochoco Mountains east of Prineville, it flows north, then east, then south-southwest to meet the larger stream between Post and Paulina. The confluence is 111 miles (179 km) upstream of where the Crooked River flows into the Deschutes River.
