Oriskany Creek is a 33-mile-long (53 km) river in New York, United States. It rises in Madison County and flows northeastward, primarily through Oneida County. Oriskany Creek is a tributary of the Mohawk River and therefore part of the Hudson River watershed.
Oriskany Creek is wide and shallow, affording passage to only canoes, and that for only part of its length. The creek is known for its brown trout, which are caught from the shore or by wading.
The Oneida village of Oriska was located near the mouth of the creek, by the Mohawk River.
When settlers arrived, the creek became the power source of many mills along its course.
