The Amite River is a tributary of Lake Maurepas in Mississippi and Louisiana in the United States. It is about convert|100|mi|km|1 long. It starts as two forks in southwestern Mississippi and flows south through Louisiana, passing Greater Baton Rouge to Lake Maurepas. The lower convert|37|mi|km|1 of the river is navigable. A portion of the river is diverted via the Petite Amite River and Amite Diversion Canal to the Blind River, which also flows to Lake Maurepas.
