PICKET SPRING BRANCH. Picket Spring Branch rises four miles northwest of Pittsburg in northwest Camp County (at 33°01' N, 95°02' W). Before the impoundment of Lake Bob Sandlin in 1974 the creek was intermittent throughout and flowed in a northeasterly direction for four miles, to its mouth on Big Cypress Creek (at 33°04' N, 95°00' W). By 1984 the lower and middle reaches of the creek had been subsumed by the lake.
