Monocacy Creek (pronounced muh-naw-cuh-see) is a tributary of the Lehigh River in Northampton County, Pennsylvania, in the United States.[1]

One of only 56 limestone streams in the state of Pennsylvania, the creek's headwaters lie in the slate belt, near the borough of Chapman.[1]

From Chapman, the Monocacy follows a 20.3-mile (32.7 km) course through the limestone Lehigh Valley, to its confluence with the Lehigh River in the city of Bethlehem.[1]

Monocacy Creek is not connected to the Monocacy River in Maryland.[1]
