DEVIL'S CREEK. Devil's Creek begins within the town limits of Tell in southwestern Childress County (at 34°23' N, 100°24' W) and runs southeast for eight miles to its mouth on the North Pease River, eight miles northeast of Cee Vee in northwestern Cottle County (at 34°17' N, 100°21' W). It traverses flat to gently sloping farm and ranch lands surfaced by moderately deep to shallow silt loam that supports mesquite and grasses. Garrison Springs, located southeast of Tell, was an early Indian campsite on the stream. By the 1980s however, irrigation pumping had reduced the spring to a small seep.
