Butcher Creek is a settlement in Red Dead Redemption 2 in the Roanoke Ridge region of the New Hanover territory.

It is a small settlement that is named after the creek that runs southeast of Elysian Pool in Roanoke Ridge, across the Kamassa River. The settlement is made up of several small cabins near the shore of the river.

Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

Arthur and Charles will stop by Butcher Creek when journeying towards Beaver Hollow, and when they ask where it is, people will mutter that this is Murfree Country and shuffle away.

After rescuing Lemuel, Arthur will bring him back to his friend Obediah Hinton, who lives at the creek. Arthur will later return, and find the settlement being ravaged by wild dogs. Arthur will kill the pack of wild dogs, and the inhabitants will venture out. An Indian will say that there is a curse on the village, and Arthur needs to break charms near the village to lift it. Arthur will destroy the charms, and come back. The Indian will then tell him that the river is poisoned, and he needs to investigate Elysian Pool. Arthur will investigate, and the Indian collapses the entrance, trapping him in. He will barely escape, and come back to the settlement to find the Indian telling them to sign something to lift the curse forever. Obediah, however, can read and asks him why he is signing over his land. The Indian grows angry at Obediah for not telling him that he can read. Arthur then stumbles into camp, and tricks the Indian into revealing that he poisoned the pool, foiling his scheme.
