The Chittenango Creek watershed comprises about 290 square miles (750 km2) of drainage in Onondaga and Madison counties. The median annual flow is estimated at about 300 cubic feet per second (8.5 m3/s).
Chittenango Creek originates in Nelson Swamp in the town of Fenner in Madison County. It receives the outflow for Cazenovia Lake near the village of Cazenovia. From there it flows northward, passing over a 167-foot (51 m) waterfall in Chittenango Falls State Park before flowing through the village of Chittenango. The creek flows out into Oneida Lake near the community of Bridgeport.
