STAMPEDE CREEK (McLennan County). Stampede Creek rises six miles northwest of Moody in southwestern McLennan County (at 31°21' N, 97°26' W) and runs southwest for eleven miles to its mouth on Belton Lake, two miles northwest of White Hall in Bell County (at 31°14' N, 97°28' W). Flat to rolling prairie in the area is surfaced by dark, calcareous clays and shallow, stony clay loams that support juniper, oak, mesquite, cacti, and grasses.
