Catrake Force is a waterfall on the river Swale in North Yorkshire, England. It is not visible from the road but requires only a short walk to reach it. It comprises a series of four steps, each its own small waterfall, and each with a very different character – the largest single drop being about 20 feet (6.1 m).

It lies on the Pennine Way walk 0.5 miles (0.80 km) from Keld, downstream from Wain Wath Force. Just below Keld the river descends into a narrow gorge just above Catrake Force. The next waterfall downstream is Kisdon Force. Waterfalls in the north of England are often termed Forces after the Norse word Foss which means waterfall, whilst Catrake derives from the Latin "cataracta" (waterfall) via Middle English
