Beaver Creek rises two miles northeast of Central High in southeastern Cherokee County (at 31°43' N, 95°03' W) and runs southeast for 5½ miles to its mouth on the Angelina River, one mile north of the State Highway 21 bridge (at 31°41' N, 94°58' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It traverses flat to gently rolling terrain surfaced by sandy and clay loam that supports grasses and mixed hardwoods and pines.
