The Salmonberry River is a tributary of the Nehalem River, approximately 20 mi (32 km) long, in northwest Oregon in the United States. It drains a remote unpopulated area of the Northern Oregon Coast Range in the Tillamook State Forest approximately 65 mi (100 km) WNW of Portland. The area around the river was the site of the famous series of wildfires known as the Tillamook Burn.

It rises in northeastern Tillamook County, near the headwaters of the Nehalem, and flows WNW through the mountains, joining the Nehalem from the east in north central Tillamook County approximately 15 mi (24 km) northwest of the town of Nehalem.

The river's name comes from the salmonberry plant, Rubus spectabilis.[1]
