Celery Creek rises thirteen miles northwest of Menard in northern Menard County (at 31°03' N, 99°56' W) and runs southeast for seventeen miles to its mouth on the San Saba River, a mile west of Menard (at 30°55' N, 99°47' W). The creek traverses flat terrain with local deep dissections, surfaced by shallow and stony soils that support oak, juniper, mesquite, and grasses.
