Threemile Creek rises two miles northeast of Honey Grove in southeast Fannin County (at 33°36' N, 95°52' W) and flows southeast for 4½ miles to its mouth on Ghost Creek in Lamar County (at 33°33' N, 95°50' W). The winding, intermittent stream flows through gently sloping terrain surfaced by clayey soil and, near its mouth, silty clay loam. The surrounding woodlands are dominated by ash, pecan, oak, and cottonwood trees.
