BOGGY CREEK (Gonzales County). Boggy Creek rises six miles southwest of Moulton in far eastern Gonzales County (at 29°30' N, 97°14' W) and flows southeast for 9½ miles to its mouth on Rocky Creek, a half mile southeast of Shiner in Lavaca County (at 29°25' N, 97°09' W). At Green-Dickson Park, just north of Shiner, the stream is dammed to form Green-Dickson Lake. Two miles downstream from the lake the stream flows past the historic Shiner Brewery. Soils along the stream are well-drained upland loamy clays. The land is generally open prairie used for pasture and the cultivation of corn and grain sorghum.
