Sycamore Creek rises eight miles east of Barksdale in south central Edwards County (at 29°45' N, 100°16' W) and runs southwest thirty miles to its mouth on the West Nueces River, at Spring Ranch in north central Kinney County (at 29°33' N, 100°17' W). In its course Sycamore Creek is joined by Dry Sycamore Creek and Rough Sycamore Creek. Rough Sycamore Creek rises three miles northwest of Kelley Peak (at 29°45' N, 100°11' W) and runs south three miles to join Sycamore Creek five miles west of Kelley Peak (at 29°42' N, 100°12' W).
