Landing Creek

Landing Creek

Landing Creek is a tributary of the Mullica River in southern New Jersey in the United States. The creek originates near Egg Harbor City and joins the Mullica River just below Lower Bank near Hog Islands. It is joined along its route by Union Creek, Indian Cabin Creek, Elliot's Creek, and Rubin's Run, respectively.

For much of its length, Landing Creek has a typical Pine Barrens character to it as it runs through upland forests of Oak and Pitch Pine with periodic passes through cedar and maple swamps. Downstream from Clark's Landing Road, the stream becomes tidal and infiltrated by brackish water. For these last few miles of its stretch, Landing Creek widens and passes through extensive marshland which is characteristic of the Mullica River estuary.
