Manada Creek[1][2] is a 17.0-mile-long (27.4 km) [3] tributary of Swatara Creek in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania in the United States. The watershed drains approximately 32 sq mi (83 km).

The name is derived in Lenape, meaning "an island". The creek is born in Blue Mountain at Fort Indiantown Gap, East Hanover Township as it meanders northwest to flow through Manada Gap, Pennsylvania.

The tributary Walnut Run joins Manada Creek throughout East Hanover Township. This is a known popular area for fishing during spring seasons.

Manada Creek joins the Swatara Creek along the outskirts of the unincorporated community of Sand Beach.
