Buckwha Creek is a 12.6-mile-long (20.3 km)[1] tributary of Aquashicola Creek in the Poconos of eastern Pennsylvania in the United States.[2]

The creek originates in a swamp to the southwest of Saylorsburg, flowing southwest along the northwest side of Chestnut Ridge. About five miles below its source, it is dammed to form Princess Lake, about a mile above Kunkletown.

Buckwha Creek cuts south through Chestnut Ridge at Little Gap and joins Aquashicola Creek approximately 1.2 miles (1.9 km) downstream.[2]
