Johns Creek rises near the intersection of Farm Road 237 and the Victoria-DeWitt county line in extreme southern DeWitt County (at 28°53' N, 97°17' W) and flows southeastward about four miles to its mouth on Twelvemile Creek, a tributary of Coleto Creek (at 28°52' N, 97°14' W). Johns Creek traverses that part of Victoria County that lies in the southernmost extension of the East Texas timberlands, characterized by deep, fine sandy loam soils that support oak and hickory forest, brush, and grasses.
