JUANITA CREEK (Wharton County). Juanita Creek rises just north of the Matagorda county line in Wharton County (at 29°01' N, 96°13' W) and runs southeast through northwestern Matagorda County for seven miles to its mouth on the Tres Palacios River, two miles southeast of Midfield (at 28°56' N, 96°10' W). Much of the creek's upper length is banked by levees. The stream crosses flat to rolling terrain with some local dissection, surfaced by dark, calcareous clays and sandy and clay loams that support hardwoods and grasses.
