DRY CREEK (Parker County). Dry Creek rises a mile northwest of Peaster in northwest Parker County (at 32°54' N, 97°52' W) and runs southwest for 11½ miles to its mouth on Rock Creek, just southeast of Mineral Wells (at 32°47' N, 98°02' W). The stream traverses undulating to gently rolling land surfaced by deep sandy and loamy soils that support grasses and hardwood timber. For most of the county's history the Dry Creek area has been used as rangeland and cropland.
