SYCAMORE CREEK (Cooke County). Sycamore Creek rises 3½ miles northeast of Dexter in northeastern Cooke County (at 33°49' N, 96°57' W) and runs northwest for four miles to its mouth on Lake Texoma, five miles northeast of Dexter (at 33°52' N, 97°00' W). It crosses low-rolling to flat terrain surfaced by shallow to deep sandy and clay loams that support scrub brush and some hardwood trees. For most of Cooke County's history, the Sycamore Creek area has been used as range and crop land.
