NEGRO CREEK. Negro Creek, also known as Nigger Creek, rises on the Shackelford county line in northwestern Stephens County (at 32°51' N, 99°06' W). It is dammed in its upper reaches and flows for five miles southeast before disemboguing into Hubbard Creek Reservoir in northwestern Stephens County (at 32°49' N, 99°02' W). The creek flows through an area of rolling hills surfaced with clay and sandy loam soils that support scrub brush, mesquite, cacti, and grasses.
