MILL CREEK (Red River County). Mill Creek rises a mile north of Avery in eastern Red River County (at 33°34' N, 94°47' W) and runs northeast for sixteen miles to its mouth on the Red River, ten miles north of DeKalb in northwestern Bowie County (at 33°39' N, 94°36' W). The creek has been dammed near its upper reaches to form City Lake. The soils through which it flows are generally clayey, and the area is rural and agricultural, dotted with fields used to grow a wide variety of crops.
