TURKEY CREEK (Fort Bend County). Turkey Creek rises in southeastern Fort Bend County four miles southeast of the community of Long Point (at 29°22' N, 95°41' W) and flows southeasterly for six miles, to its mouth (at 29°19' N, 95°38' W) on Cow Creek. Turkey Creek runs just north of the Nash Dome oil field. The vegetation along its banks consists of mixed hardwoods interspersed with various prairie grasses. The mostly variable terrain is surfaced by impermeable soil and calcareous clay.
