BERKLEY CREEK

BERKLEY CREEK. Berkley Creek rises near U.S. Highway 287 in southeastern Donley County (34°48' N, 100°36' W) and flows southeast for about eight miles to its mouth on Parker Creek, just south of Memphis in northeastern Hall County (at 34°42' N, 100°32' W). It extends through an area of moderately steep slopes and locally high relief, surfaced with silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
