TURKEY CREEK (Harrison County). Turkey Creek rises two miles south of Scottsville in east central Harrison County (at 32°30' N, 94°15' W) and runs southwest for 5½ miles, through southeastern Harrison County, to its mouth on Quapaw Creek, two miles southwest of Crossroads (at 32°25' N, 94°16' W). The banks of the stream are heavily wooded in places with pine and hardwood trees, and the gently undulating to rolling terrain is surfaced by loam and clay used predominantly for agriculture.
