Brodhead Creek is a 21.9-mile-long (35.2 km)[1] tributary of the Delaware River in the Poconos of eastern Pennsylvania in the United States. It is formed by the union of Middle and Levitt branches in Barrett Township in Monroe County. The native name was "Analomink". The present name was given for Daniel Brodhead, a prominent early settler. It receives McMichael Creek as it flows south and east into the Delaware River. At one time it was called Smithfield Creek after receiving McMichael Creek.

Brodhead Creek joins the Delaware River at the head of the Delaware Water Gap.

The stream flows south, separating the boroughs of Stroudsburg and East Stroudsburg. It covers a basin of 294 sq mi and its maximum cfs was 68,800, in 1955.
