DUNN CREEK (Hunt County). Dunn Creek rises a mile northeast of Lone Oak in southeastern Hunt County (at 33°02' N, 95°57' W) and runs south for six miles, passing west of Lone Oak and east of Wind Point Park, before reaching its mouth on the Red Bird Cove of Lake Tawakoni (at 32°57' N, 95°59' W). The stream traverses an area of prairies and low-rolling hills, surfaced with clay and sandy loams that support mesquite, chaparral, and grasses. Throughout the county's history the Dunn Creek area has been used as crop and range land.
