TURKEY CREEK (San Augustine County). Turkey Creek rises six miles southwest of San Augustine in western San Augustine County (at 31°28' N, 94°12' W) and runs southeast for 10½ miles, through Angelina National Forest, to its mouth on Ayish Bayou, twelve miles south of San Augustine (at 31°22' N, 94°09' W). The banks of the stream are heavily wooded for most of its length with pine and hardwood trees, and the nearly level to moderately steep terrain is surfaced by loam and clay. The area is used predominantly for agriculture and as forest land.
