ANTELOPE CREEK (Archer County). Antelope Creek rises just west of Holliday in north central Archer County (at 33°49' N, 98°44' W) and runs north eight miles to its mouth on the Wichita River, three miles south of Iowa Park in Wichita County (at 33°54' N, 98°42' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses an area of rolling hills surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support scrub brush, mesquite, cedar, and grasses. For most of the county's history the area has been used as rangeland and for farming.
