BORREGO CREEK. Borrego Creek rises two miles west of Fairview in western Wilson County (at 29°07' N, 98°21' W) and runs southeast for twenty-six miles to its mouth on the Atascosa River, 1½ miles northwest of Campbellton in southeastern Atascosa County (at 28°46' N, 98°18' W). It crosses flat to rolling terrain with clay loam and sandy loam soils that support water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses.
