ROWDY CREEK. Rowdy Creek, also known as Buckham Creek, rises in western Lamar County (at 33°36' N, 95°49' W) just northeast of Petty and runs southeast for eighteen miles to its mouth (at 33°29' N, 95°44' W) on the North Sulphur River, four miles south of Roxton. It traverses nearly flat to strongly sloping terrain, surfaced by dark clays and deep loams that support grasses interspersed with mesquite.
