WEST BERNARD CREEK
WEST BERNARD CREEK. West Bernard Creek rises just north of Eagle Lake in southeastern Colorado County (at 29°35' N, 96°19' W) and runs southeast, through northwestern Wharton County, for thirty-three miles to its mouth on the San Bernard River, eight miles east of Wharton (at 29°23' N, 95°58' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It crosses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loam in which grow hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
