Natchez Creek is a creek that is about 5.5 miles long. It begins in Yuba County and crosses into Butte County several times before flowing into the south branch of Honcut Creek in Rackerby. It is named for a former gold mining camp along the creek, which was called Natchez because the location reminded the miners of Natchez, Mississippi.1
