KERR CREEK. Kerr Creek rises two miles northeast of Gonzales in central Gonzales County (at 29°34' N, 97°26' W) and flows southeast for eight miles to its mouth on the Guadalupe River, a mile southeast of Gonzales (at 29°29' N, 97°25' W). It runs through flat terrain, with local shallow depressions, surfaced by alkaline to calcareous clay soil that supports mixed hardwoods and pines.
