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


Butcher Creek is a small settlement named after the creek, which 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.


In the mission "That's Murfree Country", if Arthur and Charles decide to canoe some of the way to Beaver Hollow, they enter Butcher Creek. Upon arrival, Arthur remarks that the locals don’t seem very friendly, as they are met with warnings that the area is Murfree country. Due to it being night, the pair steal a pair of hitched horses and continue on to Beaver Hollow.

As part of the Stranger mission "The Wisdom of the Elders", the protagonist rescues Lemuel and brings him back to his friend Obediah Hinton at Butcher Creek. The protagonist returns later and finds the settlement be wild dogs, which the player then proceeds to exterminate. The Shaman says that there is a curse on the village, and that the player needs to destroy the charms near the village in order to lift it.

After the player does so, they return to Butcher Creek. The Shaman says that this will have made things worse. Obediah recalls an abandoned mine near Elysian Pool, so the player investigates it. Meanwhile, the Shaman collapses the entrance and seals the player inside, although they manage to escape. When the protagonist returns to the village, they see the Shaman telling Obediah that signing the document will lift the curse forever. Obediah begins reading it aloud, to which the bewildered Shaman tells him to stop. The player then appears and forces the Shaman to consume his substance; under duress, he reveals that it is poison, and admits that he was sent by the Roanoke Fuel Company to get the villagers to sign over their land. The scheme foiled, Obediah tells the player to take the money, which they do so before leaving the village.
