Course

Allen Creek begins at Little Allen Lake at an elevation of 450 metres (1,480 ft), at the height of land between the Ottawa River drainage basin to the north and east, and the Trent River drainage basin to the west and south. It flows north to the southwest end of Allen Lake, then exits the lake at the north continuing briefly north. It then turns east, takes in the right tributary Straggle Creek and reaches the west end of Fishtail Lake. It leaves Fishtail Lake at the northeast end, heads northeast, and reaches its mouth at Benoir Lake at an elevation of 352 metres (1,155 ft). Benoir Lake flows via the York River and the Madawaska River to the Ottawa River.
