MACK CREEK. Mack Creek, also known as Camp Creek, rises four miles southwest of Palestine in southwestern Anderson County (at 31°42' N, 95°40' W) and runs southwest for six miles, through southwestern Anderson County, to its mouth on the Trinity River, two miles south of Tucker by the site of the abandoned river port of Magnolia (at 31°39' N, 95°44' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. The banks of the stream are heavily wooded with mixed pine and hardwood trees, and the nearly level to moderately steep terrain is surfaced by sand and loam. The area is used predominantly as woodland.
