DRY CREEK (Hopkins County). Dry Creek rises a mile northwest of the Gamblin Cemetery in southeastern Hopkins County (at 33°04' N, 95°31' W) and runs southwest for five miles to its mouth on Running Creek, three miles west of the community of Reilly Springs (at 33°01' N, 95°32' W). The stream traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced with clay loam and sandy loam soils that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
