The Village of Charlie Creek is an unincorporated community in eastern Hardee County, Florida. In at least three websites the community is called Charlie Creek Mobile Home Estates and in one it is called Charlie Creek Mobile Estates. The Village of Charlie Creek is 0.5 miles (0.80 km) west of Charlie Creek. It is 0.25 miles (0.40 km) wide, and depending on what area is included, either 0.50 miles (0.80 km) or 0.76 miles (1.22 km) long. It has eight platted street blocks and a large area to the north that is unplatted. This north area accounts for the longer length that could be considered part of the settlement. The village is bounded on the south by Highway 64, on the east by Morgan Grice Road and citrus trees and grazing land, on the north by grazing land, and on the west by citrus orchards and grazing land.
All but a handful of the housing units in the community are mobile homes or pre-manufactured homes set up on sites. According to a map on the Home Town Locator website, the lots are not rented, but are individually owned. As of April 2012 approximately 165 housing units existed in the village. Only one business building, the Gourley Plastering building, is in the village. It is basically a pole and metal garage located on the northwest corner of Highway 64 and Morgan Grice Road. The area's only church, Charlie Creek Baptist Church, is directly next to Gourley Plastering. The church, established in 1970, is on the northeast corner of Highway 64 and Mocking Bird Road. It is one of the oldest buildings in the community. The only area of open water is a sewage processing pond in the northern part of the village.
