The River Evenlode is a river in England which is a tributary of the Thames in Oxfordshire. It rises near Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire in the Cotswold Hills and flows south-east passing near Stow-on-the-Wold, Bladon, and Eynsham, and its valley provides the route of the southern part of the Cotswold Line.

The River Evenlode passes through many villages and towns in Oxfordshire including Ascott-under-Wychwood, Chadlington, Charlbury and Cassington. The river joins the Thames several miles down river from Cassington on the reach above King's Lock 3 miles (5 km) north-west of Oxford.

The river is largely privately owned, used for fishing and other leisure activities. The Environment Agency has undertaken restoration work, as of 2008, to recover from the effects of excessive dredging [ [http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/regions/thames/1366613/1370524/1370692/?version=1&lang=_e Envrionment Agency Fish and their environment] ] . Powered craft are not allowed on the river. Hillaire Belloc commemorated the river in some of his poetry.
