WHITE OAK CREEK (Montgomery County). White Oak Creek, ditched in its upper reaches as Copeland Ditch (at 30°10' N, 95°18' W), rises three miles west of New Caney in southeastern Montgomery County (at 30°11' N, 95°19' W) and flows southeast, across the Southern Pacific Railroad line and U.S. Highway 59, for thirteen miles to join Caney Creek near its juncture with the East Fork of the San Jacinto River in northern Harris County (30°05' N, 95°10' W). The creek flows through flat to rolling terrain where hardwood forest, brush and grasses grow in deep, fine sandy loam soils.
