COTTONWOOD CREEK (Montague County). Cottonwood Creek rises twelve miles northeast of Bonita in northeastern Montague County (at 33°46' N, 97°33' W) and runs northwest for eight miles to its mouth on the Red River, eighteen miles north of Bonita (at 33°54' N, 97°35' W). It traverses generally flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments and shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support hardwood trees, conifers, brush, and grasses. The area has served as crop and range land.
