Big Pine Creek is a creek in northwestern Indiana. It begins in Round Grove Township in southwestern White County and flows generally southward some 51 miles through Benton and Warren counties before meeting the Wabash River near the town of Attica.Warren County Historical Society (2002), "A History of Warren County, Indiana (175th Anniversary Edition)"] The lower section of the creek from Rainsville to the Wabash is popular with canoeists, particularly during the spring when the water is at its highest, and affords many scenes of natural beauty where one can observe local flora, fauna and geology.
