Kinzua Creek (Native American for "turkey") joins the Allegheny Reservoir 10 miles (16 km) upstream of the city of Warren, a few miles upstream of the Kinzua Dam on the Allegheny River. The location is also the former location of Kinzua, an unincorporated community that was wiped out as a result of the construction of the Kinzua Dam; it previously formed the boundary between Kinzua and (West) Corydon before both communities were dissolved in the 1960s.
