High Island Creek is a 69.4-mile-long (111.7 km) tributary of the Minnesota River in Minnesota. It rises as Judicial Ditch No. 11 in eastern Renville County, 6 miles (10 km) south of the city of Hector, and flows east into Sibley County, then McLeod County, then back into Sibley County, where it passes the city of Arlington before entering the Minnesota River 3 miles (5 km) north of Henderson.
The creek took its name from High Island Lake, a lake along its course.
