Fulcher Creek rises a mile northwest of Cheapside in southeastern Gonzales County (at 29°18' N, 97°25' W) and runs southeast for 6½ miles to its mouth on the Guadalupe River, two miles southwest of Hochheim in DeWitt County (at 29°15' N, 97°20' W). The stream runs through flat terrain marked by shallow depressions and surfaced by clayey and sandy loam soils that support hardwoods, pines, and a variety of grasses. It was named for Churchill Fulcher, whose headright land grant of 1831 included much of its course.
