LONG TOM CREEK. Long Tom Creek rises eight miles southwest of Corrigan in west central Polk County (at 30°57' N, 94°57' W) and runs south for sixteen miles to its mouth on Long King Creek, 3½ miles north of Livingston (at 30°46' N, 94°56' W). It is intermittent in its upper reaches, where the terrain is rolling to steep with local badlands. The creek then crosses flat terrain with local shallow depressions. Vegetation consists primarily of mesquite and grasses growing in shallow to moderately deep clay and sandy loams.
