Rocky Creek, also known as Rock Creek, rises two miles west of the intersection of U.S. Highway 83 and Farm Road 1051 in north central Uvalde County (at 29°28' N, 99°48' W) and runs east for 2½ miles to its mouth on the Frio River, near the Davenport Cemetery one mile south of the highway intersection (at 29°28' N, 99°46' W). The surrounding flat terrain has locally deep and dense dissection and is surfaced on the western edge of the creek by shallow to very shallow, gravelly loam and clay, and on the east of the creek by deep loam and clay. Oak, juniper, various grasses, and some mesquite grow in the area.
