The county is well watered, the Tocoma and Schoona rivers rising within  its borders; some of the smaller streams are Chiwapa, Coonewah, Kittahutty, Mud, Chuquatonchee and Lappatubby creeks.

In the early thirties Pontotoc County presented the most charming landscape the eyes could wish to behold.  The woods had been burned annually by the Indians so there was no undergrowth to intercept the view.  The grand old forest trees covered the green hills with the umbrageous shadows, beneath which roamed herds of deer, flocks of wild turkeys, and other game which could be seen a mile away as if in some royal park."  (1)
