DEER CREEK (Clay County). Deer Creek rises five miles south of the Deer Creek community in southwestern Clay County (at 33°33' N, 98°16' W) and runs northwest for 12½ miles to its mouth on Lake Arrowhead, three miles west of the Deer Creek community (at 33°42' N, 98°23' W). It traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwood trees and conifers. The area has served as cropland and range.
