Franks Creek rises just north of Ginger in east central Rains County (at 32°51' N, 95°43' W) and runs southeast for ten miles to its mouth on the Sabine River, two miles south of Farm Road 779 (at 32°44' N, 95°41' W). The creek traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by sandy and clayey loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
