Barrel Springs Creek begins 2½ miles northwest of Montague in central Montague County (at 33°40' N, 97°45' W) and runs northwest for twelve miles to its mouth on Salt Creek, a mile east of Belcherville (at 33°48' N, 97°48' W). It traverses generally flat terrain surfaced by clayey and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. For most of the county's history, the Barrel Springs Creek area has been used as rangeland.

The following, adapted from the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition, is the preferred citation for this entry.
