Kemptville Creek is a tributary of the Rideau River, in North Grenville township, in the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville, in Eastern Ontario, Canada.

Kemptville Creek is 63 kilometres (39 mi) in length and flows through several communities, including Kemptville, Oxford Mills and Bishop's Mills. The creek was historically referred to by the name South Branch of the Rideau River, until its name was changed to Kemptville Creek in 1908.

The creek is navigable, for smaller watercraft, from the Rideau River to the town docks in Kemptville. In the summer it is also suitable for canoeing from Bishop's Mills to approximately 10km to the South of Oxford Mills (rough-launch near the railway bridge, or at the dam in town). In the spring it should be possible to canoe from Oxford Station Road (or further) to the Rideau River with one portage.
