TUSCOSSO CREEK. Tuscosso Creek, also known as Bayou Atascosa and Atascosa Creek, rises just south of the intersection of Farm roads 1878 and 2112 in east central Nacogdoches County (at 31°41' N, 94°33' W) and runs southeast for twelve miles to its mouth on Bayou Carrizo, one mile northwest of Woden (at 31°31' N, 94°32' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It crosses flat terrain with local shallow depressions surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
