The River Pocwock is a tributary of the Saint John River (Bay of Fundy), flowing in:

Its course runs, especially in Maine, entirely in forested region in an isolated mountain valley, to the southeast of the Canada–US border. Its course is located between the Fox Creek (east side) and the Chimenticook River (west side). The watershed of the Pocwock river is accessible by some forest roads.

Pocwock River empties on north shore of Saint John River (Bay of Fundy). The latter serpentines eastward, then south-east, crossing all the province of New Brunswick, and empties on the north shore of the Bay of Fundy, which is open to the south-west to the Atlantic Ocean.

Toponymy

The term Pocwock is associated with West Branch Pocwock Stream and East Branch Pocwock Stream. In Québec, the spelling of the river's name uses the letter 'k' in the middle, or "Pockwock"; the spelling "Pocwock" (without the letter k in the middle) is used by the GNIS (Geographic Names Information System) in the US.

The place name "ruisseau Pockwock" (English: Pockwock brook) was formalized on December 5, 1968, at the Commission de toponymie du Québec (Quebec Geographical Names Board).[2]
