Blackwater Creek is an approximately 19 mile riverine feature in Florida. The creek flows from Lake Norris and has a confluence with the Wekiva River near where it in turn flows into the St. Johns River.[1][2] The upper sections of Black Creek are traversed by kayak and canoe.[3] Other sections a difficult to navigate due to snags.

The area was once inhabited by Timucua and Mayaca.[4]
