COTTONWOOD CREEK (Cottle County). Cottonwood Creek rises eight miles northeast of Paducah in central Cottle County (at 34°06' N, 100°06' W) and runs south for twelve miles to its mouth on the North Wichita River (at 33°58' N, 100°07' W). It traverses rolling terrain and steep slopes surfaced by shallow clay and sandy loams that support juniper, cacti, and sparse grasses.
