CHINA CREEK (San Saba County). China Creek rises 8½ miles northwest of San Saba in central San Saba County (at 31°19' N, 98°47' W) and runs southeast for 9½ miles to its mouth on the San Saba River (at 31°13' N, 98°45' W). It crosses level to gently rolling uplands surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports live oak, mesquite, Ashe juniper, and grasses.
