The Restoule River is a river in Parry Sound District in Central Ontario, Canada.[1] It rises at Commanda Lake in geographic Patterson Township[2] at the community of Restoule. It then flows north into Restoule Lake then north into Stormy Lake at Restoule Provincial Park, at the end of Ontario Highway 534. It then heads west into geographic Hardy Township[3] to its mouth at the French River.

The total length of the river is about 40 kilometres (20 mi). From Lennon Lake in Hardy Township to the mouth, the river forms a boundary of the Dokis 9 First Nations reserve.[3]
