EAGLE CREEK (NOLAN COUNTY)
EAGLE CREEK (Nolan County). Eagle Creek rises four miles north of the Coke county line and ten miles northwest of Blackwell in southwestern Nolan County (at 32°09' N, 100°31' W) and runs southeast for sixteen miles to its mouth on Oak Creek, a mile southwest of Blackwell in far northeastern Coke County (at 32°04' N, 100°20' W). It traverses flat terrain with locally shallow depressions, surfaced by expansive clays that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
