Commissioners Creek rises four miles east of Tarpley in south central Bandera County (at 29°41' N, 99°13' W) and runs southwest for 5½ miles to its mouth on Hondo Creek, 1½ miles south of Tarpley (at 29°38' N, 99°16' W). It runs through an area of the Edwards Plateau characterized by steep slopes and limestone benches and surfaced by shallow clay loams that support open stands of Ashe juniper and live oak interspersed with grassy clearings.
