SIMMONS CREEK. Simmons Creek rises near the Blanco county line in eastern Kendall County (at 30°00' N, 98°29' W) and runs southwest for eight miles to its mouth on Curry Creek, a mile north of Guadalupe River State Park (at 29°54' N, 98°29' W). The surrounding flat terrain has local deep dissections and is surfaced by shallow, stony soil that supports oak, juniper, mesquite, and grasses. Simmons Creek may have been named for L. M. Simmons, who was granted land near the headwaters of the creek.
