LIPAN CREEK (Atascosa County). Lipan Creek, sometimes spelled Lipsan Creek, rises (at 28°50' N, 98°09' W) four miles northwest of Fashing in extreme eastern Atascosa County and runs southwest for twenty miles to its mouth on the Atascosa River, three miles south of Campbellton (at 28°42' N, 98°19' W). At the source the terrain is flat to rolling with local escarpments surfaced by mostly deep, fine sandy loam that supports brush and grasses. As the stream nears its mouth, the terrain becomes flat with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. Land in use is forested or dry crop land.
