The creek is 11 miles long and is a part of the White River system of waterways. The creek begins southeast of Huntsville, then flows generally northwest across SH 68, through Winthrow Springs State Park to Beaver Lake just east of Bentonville and Rogers.

War Eagle Creek is a safe and fun ride and a lot of gorgeous terrain is all around. Winthrow Springs State Park is located at just about the midway point and can be an excellent stopover for overnight trips. Winthrow Springs State Park offers 25 campsites, drinking water, restrooms, showers, electrical hook-ups, picnic facilities and canoe rentals. Parts of the creek banks lie within Ozark National Forest and are available for primitive camping, but other parts of the banks are privately-owned lands.
