SQUAW CREEK (PARKER COUNTY)

SQUAW CREEK (Parker County). Squaw Creek originates two miles west of Lake Weatherford in eastern Parker County (at 32°49' N, 97°40' W). The entire six-mile stream is in eastern Parker County and flows in a southerly direction through gently sloping terrain surfaced by loamy soils with a limestone base. The upper portion of the creek flows intermittently through a sparsely populated area until it is interrupted by a small unnamed reservoir. From this point, the creek flows continuously until it reaches a second reservoir, which is used for recreational purposes and has a golf course on its eastern shore. The remainder of the creek flows steadily from the reservoir spillway to its mouth on the Clear Fork of the Trinity River, west of Willow Park near Interstate Highway 20 (at 32°44' N, 97°39' W).
