LEE CREEK. Lee Creek rises just north of Oak Hill in northern Rusk County (at 32°16' N, 94°41' W). It formerly flowed northeast for eight miles to its mouth on Cherokee Bayou, two miles southwest of Easton (at 32°21' N, 94°38' W). With the construction of Lake Cherokee in the late 1940s the lower three miles of the stream were inundated, and Lee Creek now enters the lake just south of the Farm Road 1716 bridge. Flat to rolling terrain in the area is surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
