TURKEY CREEK (CALLAHAN COUNTY)
TURKEY CREEK (Callahan County). Turkey Creek rises just south of Spring Mesa in southeast Callahan County (at 32°15' N, 99°17' W) and flows southeast, through Cross Plains and into northwestern Brown County, to its mouth on Pecan Bayou, five miles southwest of Cross Cut (at 31°58' N, 99°09' W). It runs twenty-five miles through ranch and farm lands. Cottonwood Springs, near Cottonwood, is an important source for Turkey Creek. The surrounding flat terrain has local shallow depressions where water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses grow in clay and sandy loam.
