Sand Creek is a stream in El Paso County, Colorado, and a tributary of Fountain Creek.

Banning Lewis Number 1 Dam, located approximately one mile south of Shirley,[2] was built across the East Fork of Sand Creek to create Banning Lewis Reservoir Number 1.[3]

Sand Creek is not to be confused with Big Sandy Creek, location of the Sand Creek Massacre.
