Allen's Creek rises a mile northwest of Gober in south central Fannin County (at 33°29' N, 96°07' W) and flows generally southeast for five miles before joining the waters of the North Sulphur River about 1½ miles southeast of Gober (at 33°27' N, 96°04' W). It flows over rolling prairie surfaced with shallow to deep clays and clay loams. Mesquite, juniper, oak, and cacti border the banks of the stream. For most of the county's history the Allen's Creek area has been used as crop and range land.
