ROCKY CREEK (Williamson County). Rocky Creek rises one mile northeast of Florence in northwest Williamson County (at 30°51' N, 97°48' W) and runs northeast for eight miles to its mouth on the Lampasas River, 2½ miles southeast of Ding Dong in southwestern Bell County (at 30°57' N, 97°45' W). The banks of the stream are heavily wooded in places with mesquite, oak, and juniper trees, and the area has gently sloping to undulating terrain surfaced by rocky and clayey soils used predominantly as rangeland.
