Red Dead Wiki

Stillwater Creek is a body of water in Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2, and Red Dead Online in the Hennigan's Stead region of the New Austin territory.

It lies just southwest of Thieves' Landing. In Red Dead Redemption 2, the Stillwater Cabin is located within the area.


The Stranger side-mission "Flowers for a Lady" begins and ends in this location.


Stillwater Creek is a swamp-like area of meandering waterways, dense undergrowth, long grass and hanging trees. There are a number of abandoned camp sites scattered across the region, and one small shack belonging to Billy West and his wife, Annabel. The Lower Montana River pours into the creek.


Raccoons, skunks and wolves are all very common in this location. Cougars, boars, and foxes can also be found in the area, but are rare.

The creek is also home to the rare animal spawn Gordo the Boar, whose pelt is needed to complete Master Hunter Challenge - Rank 10. Jackalopes may also be found here when the Hunting and Trading Outfits DLC has been purchased.

  • The name of the creek is possibly a reference to the Saints Row series, which is considered a competitor to Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto games; the first two Saints Row games take place in a city called Stilwater.
  • A gunfight between Dutch's Gang and John Marston set in Stillwater Creek was seen in the trailer, but this never happens in-game.
  • Bonnie MacFarlane will task players to hunt down an alligator near Stillwater Creek when doing a hunting mission for her in Red Dead Online.
