Am I allowed to take relief and put my mark on the level ground behind the incline? Or do I have to balance myself on a steep incline of the creek bed?

Here's a side view diagram:
basket...grass...far side creek incline....water....close side creek incline...grass....tee pad.
Only if the TD declares the entire creek bed to be a casual relief area. Otherwise you have to take your stance on the dry (which is not one of the default rule book provided casual relief obstacles) slope of the creek bed as best you can. If you want relief from it, you have to take a penalty to do so.

UNLESS the slope is steep enough that you can take a stance at the bottom of the slope and still be within 30cm of the mark (measured straight out, not along the slope).
