The topography is typical of a plains environment, with a mixture of grasses prevalent. The western edge of the Cross Timbers invades the county's eastern portion. The creeks and streams, including Cache Creek, drain to the southeast into the Red River. Cotton County has 641.94 square miles of land and water.  The federal government platted five townsites for the Big Pasture opening, Randlett, Eschiti, Ahpeatone, Quanah, and Isadore, with the latter two in present Tillman County. Randlett is the only original town still incorporated.
