Calosa Creek rises nine miles southwest of Falfurrias in north central Brooks County (at 27°07' N, 98°15' W) and runs east for five miles to its mouth, in a pool one mile west of U.S. Highway 281 (at 27°07' N, 98°10' W). It crosses flat to gently rolling terrain surfaced by loose sand that supports scrub brush, grasses, and seasonal high-moisture plants.
