LONG HOLLOW CREEK. Long Hollow Creek rises nine miles southwest of George West in south central Live Oak County (at 28°11' N, 98°09' W) and runs east for thirteen miles to its mouth on Lake Corpus Christi, fourteen miles southeast of George West (at 28°10' N, 97°57' W). The surrounding flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments is surfaced by deep, fine sandy loam that supports brush and grass. The creek descends to flat terrain with locally shallow depressions surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses.
