COTTONWOOD CREEK (JOHNSON COUNTY)

COTTONWOOD CREEK (Johnson County). Cottonwood Creek rises four miles northeast of Alvarado in eastern Johnson County (at 32°26' N, 97°08' W) and runs southeast for fifteen miles to its mouth on the North Fork of Chamber Creek, a half mile south of Maypearl in western Ellis County (at 32°18' N, 97°04' W). The stream, intermittent in its upper and middle reaches, traverses flat to rolling prairie surfaced by dark, commonly calcareous clays that support mesquite, cacti, and grasses. The area has been used as range and crop land.
