Capota Creek rises eight miles northwest of Crystal City in southwestern Zavala County (at 28°49' N, 99°54' W) and runs south for 9½ miles to its mouth on Turkey Creek, three-quarters of a mile west of Comanche Lake (at 28°41' N, 99°55' W). The creek rises in flat to low-rolling terrain with local dissections and descends to flat terrain with shallow depressions. The local soils are clayey and sandy loams. Scrub brush, cacti, and grasses predominate around the creek's upper reaches and water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses near its lower.
