BAKER CREEK. Baker Creek rises 4½ miles north of Queen City in northeastern Cass County (at 33°13' N, 94°10' W) and runs northeast for eight miles to where it joins a small unnamed stream to form Baker Slough near Domino (at 33°16' N, 94°06' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It flows over sandy and loamy soils that support pines and hardwoods. The creek may have been named for John Baker, original grantee of land near its mouth.
