TURKEY CREEK (LAMPASAS COUNTY)
TURKEY CREEK (Lampasas County). Turkey Creek rises where North and South Turkey creeks converge, 3½ miles northwest of Adamsville in northern Lampasas County (at 31°20' N, 98°12' W). The stream flows in an easterly direction for two miles to its mouth on the Lampasas River, three miles northwest of Adamsville and one-half mile west of U.S. Highway 281 (at 31°21' N, 98°11' W). Its course crosses an area of the Grand Prairie characterized by steep slopes and limestone benches, which often give a stairstep appearance to the landscape along streams. Soils in the area are generally shallow clay loams, and vegetation consists primarily of open stands of live oak, mesquite, and Ashe juniper, along with grasses and crops.
