DEAN CREEK. Dean Creek, sometimes called Dillard or Boggy Creek, rises just south of Aiken in southwestern Shelby County (at 31°41' N, 94°20' W) and runs southwest for five miles to its mouth on Attoyac Bayou (at 31°38' N, 94°22' W). It traverses gently sloping to moderately steep terrain surfaced by deep, loamy, fine sand. The area is heavily wooded with pines and various hardwoods predominating.
