Whiteoak Creek (Red River County)


Whiteoak Creek rises four miles east of Bogata in southwestern Red River County (at 33°28' N, 95°08' W) and runs southeast for 13½ miles to its mouth on the Sulphur River, fifteen miles southeast of Clarksville (at 33°24' N, 94°58' W). The soils along the creek are loamy and clayey, and the area is heavily wooded, with various oaks predominating.
