Douglas Hollow is a tributary of North Branch Mehoopany Creek in Wyoming County, Pennsylvania, in the United States. It is approximately 1.7 miles (2.7 km) long and flows through North Branch Township. It is also known as Douglas Hollow Brook.

Douglas Hollow begins in a valley between Douglas Hill and Oak Ridge in North Branch Township. The stream passes through a small unnamed pond and flows south for several tenths of a mile before turning south-southeast for several tenths of a mile. It then turns south and crosses Pennsylvania Route 87 before reaching its confluence with North Branch Mehoopany Creek.

Douglas Hollow joins North Branch Mehoopany Creek 2.60 miles (4.18 km) near Lovelton upstream of its mouth.

Douglas Hollow is a high-gradient stream (60 meters per kilometer (320 ft/mi)) that flows in a generally southerly direction. The stream is 0.9 meters (3.0 ft) wide and in an August 2001 study was found to be dry or nearly dry in its lower reaches, with the exception of some small, disconnected pools.

Douglas Hollow flows through a mix of forested and agricultural lands. The non-forested land is mostly in the middle and upper reaches of the watershed. A total of 55 percent of the stream's length is within 100 meters (330 ft) of a road, while all of it is within 300 meters (980 ft) of one. The population density of the stream's watershed was 3 people per square kilometer (8 per square mile) in 2000.

Richard E. Douglas came to the area around 1820. The following are recorded as living in the area:
