FORT EWELL CREEK. Fort Ewell Creek rises at the junction of its east and west prongs, two miles east of Chacon Reservoir and 3½ miles north of Natalia in southeastern Medina County (at 29°14' N, 98°51' W), and runs south for 4½ miles to its mouth on Chacon Creek, a mile southeast of Natalia (at 29°12' N, 98°52' W). The stream traverses an area of rolling prairie surfaced by clay loams that support mesquite and grasses.
