Swift Creek is a 44.9-mile-long (72.3 km) river in the U.S. state of Virginia. It rises west of Richmond in Powhatan County near U.S. Route 60 and flows southeast through Powhatan County and into Chesterfield County southwest of Hallsboro. Swift Creek then flows to the north side of the Swift Creek Reservoir. After a series of twists and turns it flows into Pocahontas State Park, where it then forms Swift Creek Lake. After flowing out of Pocahontas State Park and into southeastern Chesterfield County, it eventually forms the northern boundary of Colonial Heights, where it joins the Appomattox River.
