CYPRESS CREEK (Cass County). Cypress Creek rises along the northern city limits of Queen City in northeastern Cass County (at 33°09' N, 94°09' W) and runs northeast for ten miles to the point where it joins Little Cypress Creek to form Cypress Slough, three miles north of Cass (at 33°14' N, 94°03' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses nearly level to gently rolling terrain surfaced by mostly loamy soils. Originally the area was heavily wooded, with pines and various hardwoods predominating.
