Carlow Creek rises two miles south of Douglassville in north central Cass County (at 33°09' N, 94°21' W) and runs northwest for four miles to its mouth on Wright Patman Lake, two miles north of Douglassville (at 33°12' N, 94°22' W). The creek traverses gently undulating to gently rolling terrain surfaced by sandy and loamy soils. The area was originally heavily wooded, with pines and various hardwoods predominating.
