CROCKERY CREEK. Crockery Creek rises just east of the Hood-Erath county line in northwestern Hood County (at 32°27' N, 98°02' W) and runs north for six miles, past the eastern edge of Lipan, to its mouth on Kickapoo Creek, a mile northeast of Lipan (at 32°32' N, 98°02' W). The creek traverses an area of steeply sloping terrain surfaced with shallow sandy soils that support juniper and scattered oak trees, as well as various grasses. The vicinity has generally been used as rangeland.
