GOLDENROD CREEK. Goldenrod Creek rises in the Provident City gas field in southeastern Lavaca County (at 29°20' N, 96°39' W) and runs south for seventeen miles, through Colorado and Wharton counties, to its mouth on Sandy Creek, four miles east of Cordele in northeastern Jackson County (at 29°09' N, 96°34' W). It traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
