Camp Creek rises four miles west of Franklin in central Robertson County (at 31°02' N, 96°25' W) and runs east for fifteen miles to its mouth on the Navasota River, near the Leon county line (at 31°02' N, 96°15' W). The creek is dammed four miles east of its mouth to form Camp Creek Lake, a reservoir for water conservation and flood control. The lake stores approximately 8,400 acre-feet of water and is surrounded by nearly level terrain surfaced by sandy loams that support post oaks and grasses.
