TURKEY CREEK (KINNEY COUNTY)
TURKEY CREEK (Kinney County). Turkey Creek rises in east and west forks south of Turkey Mountain in east central Kinney County (at 29°15' N, 100°07' W) and flows southeast for fifty-seven miles, partly parallel to the Southern Pacific Railroad, through southwestern Uvalde County and Comanche Lake in southwestern Zavala County, into Espantosa Lake in north central Dimmit County (at 28°38' N, 99°50' W). The East Fork rises near the Kinney-Uvalde county line (at 29°20' N, 100°10' W) and runs eight miles to its confluence with the West Fork, which rises farther north and closer to Turkey Mountain (at 29°20' N, 100°11' W) and flows for eleven miles. Turkey Creek flows through flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
