MITCHELL CREEK (Hopkins County). Mitchell Creek rises two miles southeast of Sulphur Bluff in northeastern Hopkins County (at 33°19' N, 95°26' W) and flows southeast for nine miles before emptying into White Oak Bayou 1½ miles west of the community of Lake Chapel in northwestern Franklin County (at 33°16' N, 95°16' W). The stream, intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
