ROCK CREEK (Hopkins County). Rock Creek rises a mile east of downtown Sulphur Springs in central Hopkins County (at 33°07' N, 95°38' W) and runs northeast for nine miles before emptying into White Oak Bayou two miles northwest of Weaver (at 33°11' N, 95°26' W). The creek, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, flows through flat to rolling terrain with clay loam and sandy loam soils that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
