The earliest maps refer to the stream at Platte Creek Recreation Area as Fish Creek. After the 1880s, the creek was renamed to honor Bernard Pratte, who operated a fur post near the mouth of the creek. A spelling error forever changed the name to Platte Creek. It was in this area, also, that Lewis and Clark were told to watch for the "burning bluffs."
