SANDY CREEK (Robertson County). Sandy Creek begins 2½ miles northeast of Calvert in west central Robertson County (at 31°02' N, 96°37' W) and flows southwest, then southeast, for fourteen miles before emptying into Mud Creek (at 30°55' N, 96°39' W) near the junction of Mud Creek and the Little Brazos River three miles south of Calvert. The stream, intermittent in its upper reaches, is joined by Tidwell Creek. The terrain is nearly level to gently sloping and is surfaced by loams that support post oak woods and grassland mosaics.
