TURKEY CREEK (Johnson County). Turkey Creek rises near the northwestern edge of Keene in central Johnson County (at 32°24' N, 97°20' W) and runs southeast, through Lake Alvarado, for a total of ten miles to its mouth on the North Fork of Chambers Creek, a few miles southeast of Alvarado (at 32°21' N, 97°10' W). In its upper reaches the creek is dammed three times to make small ponds. Most of the creek is in the Cross Timbers region. The predominant soil type is deep, slightly acid, loam and sand. The creekbed is primarily fine sandy loam and is frequently flooded.
