TURKEY CREEK (Parker County). Turkey Creek rises two miles north of Whitt in northwest Parker County (at 32°58' N, 98°03' W). The stream, intermittent in its upper reaches, flows southwest for eighteen miles to its mouth on the Brazos River, five miles west of Mineral Wells in Palo Pinto County (at 32°49' N, 98°13' W). It passes through terrain characterized by rolling hills and steep to moderate slopes. The soils in the area are clay and sandy loams, and the vegetation includes oak, mesquite, scrub brush, and grasses.
