TURKEY CREEK (WILBARGER COUNTY)
TURKEY CREEK (Wilbarger County). Turkey Creek rises eight miles south of Vernon in south central Wilbarger County (at 34°02' N, 99°18' W) and flows southeast for eight miles to join Beaver Creek just north of Farm Road 1811 (at 33°58' N, 99°11' W). It passes through gently sloping to flat terrain. The clay and sandy loam soils along its banks support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
