Description

The stream source area is in Madison County in the Boston Mountains just west of the community of Boston and north of Arkansas Route 16 at an elevation of about 2,100 feet (640 m). The stream flows northwest passing under and then running parallel to Arkansas Route 23 passing the communities of Witter and Aurora. It flows past the east side of Huntsville and crosses under U.S. Route 412 northeast of Harmony. It turns to the northwest as passes the south side of Withrow Springs State Park and under Route 23 again. It continues passing under Arkansas Highway 45 to the north of Hindsville and passes through the northeast corner of Washington County and into Benton County. The stream passes under Arkansas Highway 303 just west of War Eagle and makes a sharp turn (incised meander) to the south. The stream enters the waters of Beaver Lake just prior to re-entering Washington County. Prior to the creation of Beaver Lake, the stream entered the White River about three miles to the west-southwest.

The creek has the name of War Eagle, an Indian chieftain.
