CLARE CREEK. Clare (Claire) Creek rises eight miles southeast of Jasper in northeastern Jasper County (at 30°52' N, 93°53' W) and runs southeast for nine miles to its mouth on White Oak Creek, in western Newton County (at 30°46' N, 93°50' W). It cuts through the gently undulating to hilly terrain surfaced by sandy and clay loam that supports loblolly, shortleaf, and longleaf pines. The area is used for timber production, woodland grazing, and pasturelands.
