Marsh Creek is a 13.0-mile-long (20.9 km)[3] tributary of Pine Creek in Pennsylvania in the United States.[4]

Marsh Creek begins in the borough of Wellsboro, at the confluence of Kelsey Creek, Morris Branch, and Charleston Creek.[5] Marsh Creek flows north, then west, and joins Pine Creek just downstream of Ansonia in Tioga County.[5] A small flood in 1993 ruined a marginal amount of farmland.
