Big Creek is a roughly 120 kilometre-long tributary of British Columbia's Chilcotin River.

Its source is in the midst of an area known as the South Chilcotin, near the vertex of the boundaries of Big Creek Provincial Park, the valley of the Taseko River and Taseko Lakes, and the Spruce Lake Protected Area (aka the "South Chilcotin" even though it's in the Bridge River Country). Near its head are Lorna Lake, renowned for its alpine setting, and a location known as Graveyard Valley, believed to be the site of the final battle of a 19th Century war between the Tsilhqot'in and St'at'imc peoples over control of the upper basin of the Bridge River, which lies over the mountains to the south of Big Creek.
