ALLIGATOR CREEK (NAVARRO COUNTY)
ALLIGATOR CREEK (Navarro County). Alligator Creek rises near Long Prairie in southeastern Navarro County (at 32° 04' N, 96° 13' W) and flows southeast for twelve miles to its mouth on Richland Creek, near the junction of U. S. Highway 287 and Farm Road 488 in northeastern Freestone County (at 31° 57' N, 96° 05' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, flows through flat to rolling terrain surfaced with clayey and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses.
