The Roaring River is a 14.9-mile-long (24.0 km)[2] river in Barry County, Missouri, in the Ozarks. It is a tributary of the White River, into which it flows in Eagle Rock, Missouri. This section of the White River is a reservoir called Table Rock Lake.

The stream was named on account of roaring waters from a cave along its course.[3]
