HOLLY CREEK (Wood County). Holly Creek rises just south of State Highway 154 in east central Wood County (at 32°47' N, 95°12' W) and runs south for five miles, passing through the small Holly Lake just before reaching its mouth on Big Sandy Creek, seven miles north of Hawkins (at 32°43' N, 95°13' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses gently rolling to flat terrain surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support hardwoods and pines.
