Bartons Creek rises three miles southeast of Rosanky in southern Bastrop County (at 29°53' N, 97°15' W) and flows eastward for 16½ miles to its mouth on the Colorado River, northwest of West Point in Fayette County (at 29°58' N, 97°04' W). The stream runs through an area of eroded terraces and uplands with loamy surface soil. Vegetation in the area consists primarily of post oak woods and crops.
