Bluff Creek rises in eastern Briscoe County (at 34°27' N, 101°01' W) and runs east for five miles to its mouth on the Little Red River, where that stream intersects with the western line of Hall County (at 34°30' N, 100°56' W). The streambed is on the former JA and Quitaque (Lazy F) ranches and is still the site of ranching activities. Burson Lake, a small reservoir on Bluff Creek, has concessions and other lake-resort facilities. The creek crosses terrain surfaced by silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
