Manatawny Creek is an 18.2-mile-long (29.3 km)[1] tributary of the Schuylkill River in Pennsylvania in the United States.[2]

Manatawny Creek comes from the Lenape (or Delaware Indian) term Man'en'tau'wata'wik, which means "drink-at-uninhabited-place"[3] or "where we drank liquor".[4]

Manatawny Creek joins the Schuylkill River at Pottstown in Montgomery County.[2]
