The Little River Reservoir is located in Durham, North Carolina, United States, and is one of the main sources of drinking water for the town.

The reservoir was created by a dam completed in 1988. It hosts a city park that offers fishing facilities including boat, canoe, and kayak rentals, along with picnic tables and restrooms. Private boats are not permitted on the reservoir.
