WHITE OAK CREEK (Hopkins County). White Oak Creek, also known as White Oak Bayou, rises a mile east of Pleasant Grove in west central Hopkins County (at 33°11' N, 95°47' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, flows northeast for sixty-six miles, through northern Franklin, Titus, and Morris counties, before emptying into the Sulphur River five miles northeast of Marietta in extreme northwestern Cass County (at 33°16' N, 94°39' W). The stream's course takes it through flat terrain with local shallow depressions and clay and sandy loam soils. Vegetation along the basin consists primarily of water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
