Finley Creek is a stream in the Ozarks of southern Missouri. The headwaters of the Finley are in Webster County southeast of Seymour. The stream flows west-southwest into Christian County, through Ozark and into the northeast corner of Stone County to its confluence with the James River at the old townsite of Jamesville. The Finley is bridged by Missouri Route 125 at Linden, Missouri Route 14 and US Route 65 in Ozark, and US Route 160 southwest of the old Riverdale dam.
Some say Finley Creek was named after John Finley, a companion of Daniel Boone, while others believe the creek has the name of James Finley, an early hunter.
