Dogwood Creek rises nine miles southwest of Brenham in southwestern Washington County (at 30°05' N, 96°32' W) and runs southeast for nine miles to its mouth on the East Fork of Mill Creek, 1½ miles north of Industry in Austin County (at 30°00' N, 96°31' W). It traverses an area of low-rolling hills and prairies, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support grasses, mesquite, and occasional post oak.
