CAMP LAKE SLOUGH. Camp Lake Slough rises one-half mile east of U.S. Highway 83 and four miles south of Uvalde in southern Uvalde County (at 29°08' N, 99°49' W) and runs southeast for nineteen miles to its mouth on the Leona River, four miles north of Batesville in northeast Zavala County (at 29°01' N, 99°37' W). Four impoundments-Ranger, Kenedy, Caliche, and County Line lakes-are located on small tributaries of Camp Lake Slough within a three-mile stretch immediately north of the Uvalde-Zavala county line. The creek rises in flat to rolling terrain with steep margins, surfaced by gravelly loams that support oak, juniper, elm, and grasses. It descends to flat terrain with shallow depressions and low relief, surfaced by expansive clays that support grasses, water-tolerant hardwoods, and conifers, interspersed with pecan and other hardwoods.
