Waterman Creek is a 3.0-mile-long (4.8 km)[2] southward-flowing stream in southern San Mateo County, California. Rising near Big Basin Way and the Santa Cruz County line, it empties into Pescadero Creek.[3]

In 2008, a conservation organization awarded $32,000 to the San Mateo County Farm Bureau to fund removal of a 12-foot (3.7 m) high, 100-year-old log dam that was preventing steelhead from accessing potential spawning grounds in the upper reaches of the creek.[4]
