The Wilmington River is a 17.3-mile-long (27.8 km) tidal river in the U.S. state of Georgia. It was originally called St. Augustine's Creek. A creek of the same name exists to the northwest of downtown Savannah.

At its north end, it connects with the Savannah River, then travels southwest past Savannah, then turns southeast and ends in Wassaw Sound, an arm of the Atlantic Ocean.
