Kinlichee Creek (also known as Ganado Wash and Kin(-)Li(-)Chee Creek) is a stream located in Apache County, Arizona, northeast of the census-designated place of Ganado.

The head of Kinlichee Creek is located 7.5 miles (12.1 km) west of Fort Defiance, Arizona; it flows to the southwest 3.5 miles (5.6 km) and then west-northwest through Bear Canyon. It then joins Lone Tule Wash at the head of Pueblo Colorado Wash, which is 3.3 miles (5.3 km) northeast of Ganado.

The name was collected by the United States Geological Survey between 1976 and 1980, and entered into the Geographic Names Information System on February 8, 1980.[1]
