LICK CREEK. Lick Creek rises in northeastern Franklin County (at 33°13' N, 95°09' W) three miles northeast of Mount Vernon and runs north for five miles to its mouth (at 33°17' N, 95°09' W) on White Oak Creek, seven miles southeast of Hagansport. The creek has been dammed about a half mile from its mouth to form Lake Romal, a small reservoir. The level to undulating terrain is surfaced by loam with a clay subsoil that supports dense woods in which pines and various hardwoods predominate.
