RUCKER CREEK. Rucker Creek rises in extreme southeastern Parker County (at 32°34' N, 97°41' W) and runs south for twelve miles to its mouth (at 32°26' N, 97°45' W) on Lake Granbury, just across the lake from the town of Granbury. The nearly level to rolling grassy land is surfaced by shallow to deep clays and loams. For most of its history the Rucker Creek area has been used as range and crop land.
