TURKEY CREEK (Tyler County). Turkey Creek rises five miles north of Woodville in central Tyler County (at 30°51' N, 94°28' W) and runs southeast thirty-three miles into part of Big Thicket National Preserve west of McNeely Lake to its mouth on Village Creek, eight miles north of Kountze in northern Hardin County (at 30°28' N, 94°21' W). The creek runs through flat terrain with local shallow depressions surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
