SULPHUR CREEK (KARNES COUNTY)
SULPHUR CREEK (Karnes County). Sulphur Creek, also known as Puente de Piedra, rises three miles northeast of Zunkerville in southwestern Karnes County (at 28°44' N, 97°57' W) and runs southwest for twenty-eight miles, crossing northwestern Bee County, to its mouth on the Nueces River, just west of Oakville in central Live Oak County (at 28°26' N, 98°07' W). It is intermittent in its upper reaches. The stream traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses.
