Daniel Crommelin Verplanck (March 19, 1762 – March 29, 1834) was a United States Representative from New York. Born in New York City, he was educated under private tutors and graduated from Columbia College (later Columbia University) in New York City in 1788. He studied law, was admitted to the bar and commenced practice in New York City in 1789; he also engaged in banking.

Verplanck was elected as a Democratic-Republican to the Eighth Congress to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Isaac Bloom. He was reelected to the Ninth and Tenth Congresses and served from October 17, 1803 to March 3, 1809; he was not a candidate for renomination in 1808, and resumed the practice of law. From 1828 to 1830 he was judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Dutchess County. In 1834 he died at his home, Mount Gulian, near Fishkill; interment was in Trinity Church Cemetery, Fishkill.

Daniel Verplanck's son, Gulian Crommelin Verplanck, was also a U.S. Representative from New York.
