BEAR CREEK (CARSON COUNTY)
BEAR CREEK (Carson County). Bear Creek rises at the junction of its east and west forks in central Carson County (at 35°31' N, 101°18' W) and flows to the north for seventeen miles to its mouth on the Canadian River, northeast of Borger in southern Hutchinson County (at 35°46' N, 101°19' W). The stream, in the Dixon Creek Division of the Four Sixes Ranch, is in the center of the vast Panhandle oilfieldqv, a harsh, mostly flat area of sandy soils that support brush, grasses, mesquite, and cacti.
