Sandy Creek, also known as Big Sandy Creek, rises four miles south of Browndell in northeastern Jasper County. Intermittent through most of its course, the stream runs southwest for 24½ miles, through the town of Jasper to its mouth on B. A. Steinhagen Lake. The surrounding geography is gently undulating to hilly terrain, and it is surfaced by loamy and clay soils that support hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. Early settlers constructed several saw and grist mills on Sandy Creek. In addition, the stream provided early residents of Jasper with a convenient source of water.
Sandy Creek Park is located on the southeast side of B.A. Steinhagen Lake between the towns of Woodville and Jasper. The lake provides a great getaway for fishing, boating, picnicking, camping and birding.
