Camp Wood Creek, an intermittent, spring-fed stream, rises just north of Farm Road 337 on the divide separating the Nueces and Frio canyons in southwestern Real County (at 29°45' N, 99°55' W) and runs southwest for ten miles to its mouth on the Nueces River, just above Camp Wood (at 29°41' N, 100°01' W). It winds down the steep eastern descent into the Nueces canyon over a bed of limestone, gravel, and calcareous soil. The surroundings are typical of the heavily dissected canyonlands of the Balcones Escarpment on the southern edge of the Edwards Plateau, forested with open stands of live oak, mesquite, and Ashe juniper.
