The Dennys River is a river in Washington County, Maine. From the outflow of Meddybemps Lake (45°02′20″N 67°21′27″W / 45.0390°N 67.3576°W / 45.0390; -67.3576 (Dennys River source)) in Meddybemps, the river runs about 23 miles (37 km)[1] southeast and east to Dennysville, where it becomes tidal and soon joins the Hardscrabble River estuary to form Dennys Bay.
