KICKAPOO CREEK (Red River County). Kickapoo Creek rises about five miles northwest of Avery in eastern Red River County (at 33°37' N, 94°50' W) and runs southwest for 15½ miles to its mouth on Cuthand Creek, about nine miles south of Annona (at 33°27' N, 94°56' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses clayey soils that are frequently flooded. The area is generally wooded, with post and blackjack oaks predominating along the stream's upper reaches and a variety of water-tolerant hardwoods growing near its mouth.
