MAXWELL CREEK. Maxwell Creek rises just west of Brookston and south of U.S. Highway 82 in central Lamar County (at 33°38' N, 95°43' W) and runs southeast for twelve miles to its mouth on the North Sulphur River, just north of the Delta county line four miles west of Gadston (at 33°29' N, 95°39' W). The surrounding flat to gently sloping terrain descends to low-lying flood plains and is surfaced by loam and clay that support grasses interspersed with some juniper, oak, mesquite, and water-tolerant hardwoods and conifers.
