TURKEY CREEK (Erath County). Turkey Creek rises 2½ miles south of State Highway 108 in northwestern Erath County (at 32°28' N, 98°25' W) and runs northwest for seven miles to its mouth on the South Fork of Palo Pinto Creek, 1½ miles west of Mingus in southwestern Palo Pinto County (at 32°33' N, 98°27' W). Rolling prairies in the area are surfaced by clay loam that supports mesquite, grasses, and oak.
