ROBINSON CREEK (Hood County). Robinson Creek rises in northwestern Hood County near the Erath county line (at 32°27' N, 98°01' W) and runs northeast eleven miles to its mouth on Lake Granbury, three miles north of Thorpe Springs (at 32°30' N, 97°50' W). The creek was most likely named for Thomas Robinson, who held land on the stream. Star Hollow Creek is a tributary of Robinson Creek. Steep slopes in the area are surfaced by shallow, sandy loams that support cacti and sparse grasses. For most of Hood County's history the Robinson Creek area has been used as ranchland.
