REESE CREEK. Reese Creek rises seven miles southwest of Killeen in southwestern Bell County (at 31°04' N, 97°51' W) and runs southeast for nine miles to its mouth on the Lampasas River, near Ding Dong (at 30°58' N, 97°47' W). The stream, probably named for the Reese family granted most of the land in the area, flows through gently rolling to rolling terrain surfaced by gravelly and loamy soils and utilized as rangeland. The local vegetation includes live oak, mesquite, and grasses.
