ROCKY CREEK (Washington County). Rocky Creek rises four miles southeast of Burton in west central Washington County (at 30°07' N, 96°34' W) and runs east for six miles to its mouth on the East Fork of Mill Creek, just west of Klump (at 30°07' N, 96°29' W). Gently sloping to level terrain in the area is surfaced by clay that supports grass and scattered post oak motts.
