Great Coharie Creek begins in northern Sampson County and flows south, passing a few miles west of Clinton. It adds Little Coharie Creek, and 15 miles south of Clinton, it joins Six Runs Creek to form the Black River. Great Coharie Creek is swampy in its headwaters, as are most Sampson County rivers. The banks rise somewhat downstream, where it becomes a blackwater river confined to a single channel. This guide contains 5 sections of Great Coharrie Creek from Keener Road (Sampson Co. 1746) bridge to NC 903 (Sampson Co. 1003) bridge.
