Sugar Creek is a waterway located in the U.S. state of Indiana. It originates in a farm field approximately two miles south of Kempton, Indiana, and travels west-southwest for about 93 miles (150 km)[1] before merging with the Wabash River 5 miles (8.0 km) north of Montezuma. No notably large communities are built along it except for Crawfordsville.

Sugar Creek flows through two Indiana state parks, Shades and Turkey Run, and is a popular tourist and canoeist attraction. The creek and its many small tributaries are notable for the picturesque canyons and small waterfalls they've created in the area's rocky terrain. The fictional The Sugar Creek Gang series of books is based along this creek.

The Darlington Covered Bridge spans Sugar Creek in Franklin Township, Montgomery County, Indiana.[2] It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[3]
