CHEROKEE CREEK (Briscoe County). Cherokee Creek rises in east central Briscoe County (at 34°31' N, 101°03' W) and runs north twelve miles to its mouth on the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River (at 34°37' N, 101°00' W). It was on the JA Ranch properties and gave its name to Cherokee Camp, one of the ranch's twelve winter line camps. The creek crosses variable terrain surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
