MCKIM CREEK. McKim Creek is formed by the junction of the East Prong of McKim Creek and the West Prong of McKim Creek in northeastern Jasper County, near the convergence of the Jasper, Newton, and Sabine county lines (at 31°09' N, 93°55' W) and runs northwest for five miles to its mouth on Sam Rayburn Reservoir, six miles southeast of Pineland in southwestern Sabine County (at 31°09' N, 93°59' W). The creek was probably named for James McKim, an original grantee of land through which the it flows. The area around the creek is nearly level to strongly sloping and lies mostly within Sabine National Forest.
