Description 

This is more like a slough that flows into a former gravel pit below when enough field runoff warrants from northerly branches. Oak Dale Branch flows around the gravel pit lake, eventually into Black Creek. Oak Dale Church was nearby (around the corner & south), however only the cemetery remains today.
