Actually this is called Otter Creek as it was once designated as the South Fork Vernon Fork Muscatatuck River until the early sixties. USGS maps have changed the name also along with the IN. board of geographic names did in May of 1961. Many features in Ripley County have longtime titles of Otter Creek labeled upon them.
