Caney Creek rises two miles south of Moore Station in eastern Henderson County (at 32°09' N, 95°35' W). It formerly ran east for six miles to its mouth on the Neches River. Since the construction of Lake Palestine in the early 1960s, the lower two miles of the creek have been inundated, and the creek now enters the lake just south of Cape Tranquility (at 32°09' N, 95°30' W). The surrounding flat to rolling terrain is surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.

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