SLATER CREEK. Slater Creek rises two miles southeast of Ben Wheeler in southeast Van Zandt County (at 32°25' N, 95°42' W) and flows four miles south to its mouth on Callender Lake just north of the Henderson county line (at 32°19' N, 95°41 W). The stream begins in flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments surfaced by deep, fine sandy loams that support hardwood forests and conifers; thence it flows onto rolling prairie where clay loam soils support mixed hardwood and pine forests, mesquite, and grasses.
