Campbells Creek flows for its entire length in Kanawha County. It rises approximately 0.4 miles (0.64 km) east of the unincorporated community of Putney and flows northwestward through Putney and the unincorporated communities of Annfred, Blount, Cinco, and Fivemile; then southwestward through the unincorporated communities of Tad and Coal Fork. It flows into the Kanawha River approximately 0.5 miles (0.80 km) north-northwest of Port Amherst. The creek is paralleled by county roads for most of its course.
