Baker Slough originates where Baker Creek joins a small unnamed stream near Domino in northeast Cass County (at 33°16' N, 94°06' W) and runs east for 3½ miles to its mouth on Long Slough (at 33°16' N, 94°03' W). The loamy and clayey soils in this nearly level to gently undulating area are flood-prone, and native vegetation includes water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. Baker Slough is reported to have been named for Cullen Montgomery Baker, who is said to have camped in the area frequently.

The following, adapted from the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition, is the preferred citation for this entry.
