Appurceon Creek rises eight miles southeast of Asherton in south central Dimmit County (at 28°21' N, 99°46' W) and runs northeast for nineteen miles to its mouth on the Nueces River, twelve miles east of Asherton (at 28°29' N, 99°33' W). It traverses an area of rolling hills surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports scrub brush, mesquite, cacti, and grasses; in the creek's lower reaches the terrain becomes flat with locally shallow depressions, and the vegetation changes to water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses.
