COTTONWOOD CREEK (Armstrong County). Cottonwood Creek rises in north and south forks in southeastern Armstrong County. The forks run east for seven miles and join near the county line (at 34°54' N, 100°56' W) to form Cottonwood Creek, which runs for two miles to its mouth on Mulberry Creek in Donley County (at 34°48' N, 100°56' W). The creek traverses flat to gently sloping plains surfaced by loam that supports mesquite. It is on the JA Ranch holdings.
