LONG CREEK (Parker County). Long Creek, also known as Bee Creek, rises in southern Parker County (at 32°37' N, 97°42' W) eight miles south of Annetta and runs southwest for 12½ miles to its mouth (at 32°31' N, 97°50' W) on the Brazos River, in Hood County four miles north of Granbury. The intermittent stream passes through nearly level to rolling land surfaced with shallow to deep clay and loam soils that support grasses. The Long Creek area has been used as range and crop land.
