BECKUM CREEK. Beckum Creek rises two miles east of Woodlawn in north central Harrison County (at 32°40' N, 94°18' W) and runs northeast for 6½ miles through northeastern Harrison County to its mouth on Big Cyprus Bayou, near Baldwin (at 32°43' N, 94°14' W). It is intermittent in its upper reaches. The surrounding gently undulating to hilly terrain is surfaced by loam and clay and is heavily wooded in places with pine and hardwood trees. The land is used predominantly for agriculture.
