GREASY CREEK. Greasy Creek, also known as Richland Creek, rises two miles north of Cox in northeastern Upshur County (at 32°54' N, 94°50' W) and runs northeast for four miles to its mouth on Big Cypress Creek, four miles east of Holly Springs in southeastern Camp County (at 32°56' N, 94°46' W). Lake O' the Pines has inundated the lower 1½ miles of the stream. The local terrain is flat to low-rolling and is surfaced by clay and sandy loam soils that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
