Blanco Creek rises near the intersection of the Bee, Goliad, and Karnes county lines in extreme southern Karnes County (at 28°41' N, 97°48' W). It flows southeast for forty-five miles, forming the boundary between Bee and Goliad counties and continuing into west central Refugio County, where its confluence with Medio Creek just west of Refugio forms the Mission River (at 28°19' N, 97°19' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It traverses flat to rolling terrain with clay loam and sandy loam soils that support water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses.
