TURKEY CREEK (Potter County). Turkey Creek rises near State Highway 136 in northeastern Potter County (at 35°30' N, 101°37' W) and flows northwest four miles to its mouth on Lake Meredith on the Canadian River (at 35°37' N, 101°40' W). It was formerly included in the LX range. The flat to rolling area is characterized by local escarpments and surfaced mostly by deep, fine sandy loam that supports hardwood forests, brush, and grasses.
