COTTONWOOD CREEK (Armstrong County). Cottonwood Creek rises in east central Armstrong County (at 35°02' N, 101°15' W) and runs east for nine miles, passing north of Goodnight, to its mouth on the Salt Fork of the Red River near the Donley county line (at 35°04' N, 101°07' W). The creek traverses sloping mesquite plains with loamy soils. It was on the JA Ranch and later the Goodnight Ranch.
