The source area for the stream lies in western Reynolds County in the area just south of Missouri Route 72. The stream flows south through southeastern Dent County and passing under Missouri Route A and into northeast Shannon County. The stream meanders southwest roughly paralleling Route A then veering south-southwest to its confluence with the Current River just after passing under Missouri Route 19 north of Round Spring.
Sinking Creek is one of the main features of Echo Bluff State Park, established in 2016. Park visitors often swim, wade, and float in the cool waters and swimming holes of the stream. The park's namesake is the Echo Bluff, which towers over the creek.
Sinking Creek was named for the fact it is a losing stream along part of its course.
