KICKAPOO CREEK (VAN ZANDT COUNTY)
KICKAPOO CREEK (Van Zandt County). Kickapoo Creek rises in two branches just south of State Highway 64 in southeastern Van Zandt County (at 32°32' N, 95°48' W) and runs southeast for thirty-seven miles to its mouth on Lake Palestine, in Kickapoo Cove half a mile northwest of State Highway 20 (at 32°15' N, 95°28' W). The creek begins in an area of rolling prairie, surfaced by clay loam that supports mesquite, grasses, and some mixed hardwood and pine forests. Toward its mouth the creek passes through land that is flat with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
