MILL CREEK (Jasper County). Mill Creek rises 4½ miles northwest of Harrisburg in northeastern Jasper County (at 31°05' N, 93°55' W) and runs northwest, through Jasper County and into Sabine County, for 9½ miles, passing just south of Brookeland before disemboguing at the Sam Rayburn Reservoir in extreme southern Sabine County (at 31°09' N, 94°02' W). The stream cuts through the heavily wooded, gently rolling hills of the northern regions of Jasper County.
