TIGER CREEK (San Augustine County). Tiger Creek rises two miles east of San Augustine in northeastern San Augustine County (at 31°31' N, 94°04' W) and runs southeast for eleven miles, through northeastern San Augustine County and northwestern Sabine County, to its mouth on Palo Gaucho Bayou, one mile northeast of Rosevine in Sabine County (at 31°26' N, 93°57' W). The banks of the stream are heavily wooded in places with pine and hardwood trees, and the nearly level flood plain, surfaced by loam, sand, and clay, is used predominantly for agriculture and as forest land.
