since you say it is a large creek, I presume there is no significant fall or fast moving water.  In cases where there is a head of water, a neat solution is the Ram pump which uses the hydropower of falling water to pump a portion of the water uphill or to wherever.  that's an old old technology but I believe still available.

Our property is about 90ft wide and about 400ft long, the long end terminates in a large creek and so we need to pump water from the creek about 300ft with about a 20ft elevation. Anyone have any ideas on how to do this? or any forum that might give us some ideas? We have tried Backwoods Solar, but pumping water is outside their experience other than pumping it out of a well.
