BAKER SLOUGH. Baker Slough originates where Baker Creek joins a small unnamed stream near Domino in northeast Cass County (at 33°16' N, 94°06' W) and runs east for 3½ miles to its mouth on Long Slough (at 33°16' N, 94°03' W). The loamy and clayey soils in this nearly level to gently undulating area are flood-prone, and native vegetation includes water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. Baker Slough is reported to have been named for Cullen Montgomery Baker, who is said to have camped in the area frequently.
