Manada Creekis a 17.0-mile-long (27.4 km)tributary of Swatara Creek in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania in the United States. The watershed drains approximately 32 sq mi (83 km). The name is derived in Lenape, meaning "an island".
The creek is born in Blue Mountain at Fort Indiantown Gap, East Hanover Township by the confluence of several branches. It meanders southwest to flow through Manada Gap, Pennsylvania creating a water gap through Blue Mountain.
The tributary Walnut Run joins Manada Creek above Interstate 81.
It becomes the border of East Hanover and West Hanover townships. The creek continues winding through forests and agricultural farmland before it flows into the Swatara Creek along the outskirts of the unincorporated community of Sand Beach.
