Skippack Creek is a 15.7-mile-long (25.3 km)[1] tributary of Perkiomen Creek in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania in the United States.[2]

A portion of the creek flows through Evansburg State Park and passes by the census-designated place of Skippack.[2]

Skippack Creek joins Perkiomen Creek approximately 3 miles (5 km) upstream of that creek's confluence with the Schuylkill River.[2]

It is stocked with brown trout and rainbow trout; other fish in the creek include smallmouth bass, catfish, sucker, carp, panfish, and freshwater eel.
