Board Creek rises two miles northwest of Eldorado Center in southwestern Navarro County (at 31° 52' N, 96° 40' W) and flows northeast for fifteen miles before entering Richland Creek four miles west of Richland (at 31° 55' N, 96° 30' W). The stream crosses flat to rolling terrain surfaced with clayey and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses.
