DRY CREEK (Van Zandt County). Dry Creek rises one mile northwest of Van in east central Van Zandt County (at 32°32' N, 95°41' W) and runs northeast for thirteen miles to its mouth on the Sabine River, southwest of West Mineola just across the county line in northwestern Smith County (at 32°40' N, 95°34' W). It crosses flat terrain with local shallow depressions surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
