SPRING CREEK (Bowie County). Spring Creek rises 2½ miles south of Wake Village in southeastern Bowie County (at 33°23' N, 94°07' W). Intermittent in its upper reaches, the stream flows in a southerly direction for six miles to its mouth on the Sulphur River, four miles east of the Arkansas state line (at 33°18' N, 94°07' W). The soils through which Spring Creek flows are loamy along the upper and middle reaches and clayey around the mouth of the creek. The area around the upper reaches is extensively developed for commercial and residential uses. That around the middle and lower reaches is heavily wooded, with pines and various hardwoods predominating.
