LODGE CREEK. Lodge Creek rises five miles south of Joy in south central Clay County (at 33°32' N, 98°14' W) and flows south for thirteen miles before emptying into the West Fork of the Trinity River eight miles southeast of Antelope in Jack County (at 33°24' N, 98°15' W). It traverses terrain ranging from generally flat with local shallow depressions to rolling hills. The area drained by the stream-along which live oak, mesquite, water-tolerant hardwoods, and scrub brush and cacti are common-has generally served as crop and range land.
