Bingham Branch rises at the juncture of North and South Bingham creeks, four miles southeast of Forestburg in southeast Montague County (at 33°31' N, 97°30' W), and flows southeast for two miles to its mouth on Clear Creek in Cooke County (at 33°30' N, 97°28' W). It crosses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. For most of the county's history the Bingham Branch area has been used as rangeland. Henry Bingham once owned the land that the stream crosses.
