Bee House Creek, in western Coryell County, is formed by the confluence of North Bee House and South Bee House creeks. North Bee House Creek rises two miles south of Evant in the northwestern corner of the county (at 31°25' N, 98°09' W) and flows southeast for fifteen miles. South Bee House Creek rises five miles northeast of Adamsville in northeastern Lampasas County (at 31°21' N, 98°07' W) and flows southeast for ten miles. The two streams run together fifteen miles southeast of Evant (at 31°19' N, 97°59' W), and the stream thus formed, Bee House Creek, continues southeast for ten miles to its mouth on Cowhouse Creek, ten miles north of Copperas Cove (at 31°17' N, 97°53' W). The area's flat to rolling terrain is surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
