Bluff Creek rises in the southeast corner of Collin County (at 33°35' N, 96°23' W) and flows southwest for two miles to Moores Lake. From the dam at the west end of the lake, the stream flows west for a half mile and then turns southwest again to run an additional 1½ miles to its mouth on Camp Creek, near the northern border of Rockwall County (at 33°00' N, 96°26' W). Bluff Creek traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by dark clays that support prairie grass, mesquite, and cactus.

The following, adapted from the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition, is the preferred citation for this entry.
