The Kaleet River effectively starts north of Lower Macdougall Lake in the Kitikmeot Region, Nunavut, Canada just east of Joe Lake, 66°16′31″N 098°20′13″W / 66.27528°N 98.33694°W / 66.27528; -98.33694 (Joe Lake (Kaleet River)). It is a small, silty river constituting the eastern boundary of the Queen Maud Gulf Bird Sanctuary. It is a main feeder river to Sherman Basin, 67°46′59″N 097°34′59″W / 67.78306°N 97.58306°W / 67.78306; -97.58306 (Sherman Basin (Kaleet River)), at its final outlet. There is evidence of earlier Inuit presence in the form of inuksuit. There is also evidence of a more modern presence in the form of cairns. There is at least one cabin on the north side of the Kaleet, as it widens entering Sherman Basin.
