KRUSE BRANCH. Kruse Branch, sometimes called Camp Branch, rises one mile south of Siloam in southwestern Bowie County (at 33°22' N, 94°33' W). Intermittent in its upper reaches, the stream flows south for four miles to its mouth on Bassett Creek, a mile west of Bassett (at 33°19' N, 94°35' W). The soils through which the creek flows are loamy. Pastures and fields around the upper and middle reaches of the creek produce a wide variety of crops. The area around the lower reaches of the creek is heavily wooded, with post oak, blackjack oak, and elm trees predominating.
