STATE LINE CREEK. State Line Creek rises just east of the Arkansas state line and four miles east of Bloomburg in far eastern Cass County (at 33°08' N, 94°04' W). Intermittent in its upper reaches, the winding stream flows south, in and out of Texas, for fifteen miles to its mouth on Black Bayou in Caddo Parish, Louisiana (at 32°58' N, 94°02' W). The soils are generally loamy, and the area is level to gently rolling. Where not cleared, the area around the creek is heavily wooded, with pine and various hardwoods predominating.
