MUSTANG CREEK (Lamar County). Mustang Creek rises in southeastern Lamar County (at 33°35' N, 95°20' W) about five miles north of Deport and runs southeast for 23½ miles to its mouth (at 33°23' N, 95°10' W) on the Sulphur River, in southwestern Red River County less than a half-mile west of River Crest Lake. The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. The soils along the creek are loamy and clayey, and the land is generally used for sorghum and grain crops or for pasture. Near the mouth of the creek the area is heavily wooded, with various hardwoods predominating.
