The Flatrock River rises near Mooreland in northeastern Henry County, and flows generally southwestwardly through Rush, Decatur, Shelby and Bartholomew Counties, past the communities of Lewisville, Rushville and St. Paul. It joins the Driftwood River at Columbus to form the East Fork of the White River.DeLorme (1998). "Indiana Atlas & Gazetteer". Yarmouth, Maine: DeLorme. ISBN 0-89933-211-0 ]

In Decatur County it collects the Little Flatrock River, [Gnis|438058|Little Flatrock River] which rises in Rush County and flows southwestwardly, past Milroy.
