Buck Creek is a tributary of the Grand River found in Kent and Allegan counties in the U.S. state of Michigan. It rises in northern Allegan County, flows through rural areas of Byron and Gaines Townships, through the cities of Kentwood and Wyoming, and into Grandville where it becomes a rare urban trout stream before entering the Grand River. Stretching 20.3 miles long, Buck Creek is a source of abundant wildlife, a vital habitat for many aquatic and semi-aquatic species, and integral for clean water.
We invite you to walk or bike the Buck Creek Trail, fish this rare, urban trout stream, enjoy quiet refuge and inspiration along the creek’s edge, and join us in our efforts to keep Buck Creek clean and healthy for generations to come.
