ROCK CREEK (Bowie County). Rock Creek rises five miles southeast of New Boston in central Bowie County (at 33°27' N, 94°21' W). Intermittent in its upper reaches, the stream flows in a southerly direction for seven miles to its mouth on Big Creek, nine miles southeast of New Boston (at 33°21' N, 94°21' W). In its upper reaches the creek flows through the Red River Army Depot. The soil through which it flows is loamy, and the area around its middle and lower reaches is alternately heavily wooded and agricultural.
