MOSES BAYOU. Moses Bayou rises two miles southeast of Dickinson and one mile northwest of Camp Wallace in west central Galveston County (at 29°24' N, 95°02' W), and runs east for five miles into Moses Lake (at 29°25' N, 94°57' W). The bayou is channeled in its middle reaches. The surrounding flat to rolling prairie is surfaced by dark, commonly calcareous clay that supports mesquite, grasses, and cacti.
