Battleground Creek rises three miles southwest of Taylor in southeastern Williamson County (at 30°33' N, 97°27' W) and flows southeast for eight miles to its mouth on Brushy Creek, five miles southeast of Taylor (at 30°31' N, 97°21' W). The stream may have been named for its proximity to the battle of Brushy Creek. Battleground Creek flows through gently sloping terrain characterized by clayey soils used predominantly for agricultural purposes, and the banks of the creek are heavily wooded in places with mesquite and hardwood trees.
