EIGHTEEN CREEK. Eighteen Creek rises a mile north of the Motley-Dickens county line in extreme southeast Motley County (at 33°50' N, 100°33' W) and runs southeast for five miles, passing through the northeast corner of Dickens County, before reaching its mouth on the North Wichita River, a mile north of Dumont in King County and less than a mile east of the Dickens-King county line (at 33°49' N, 100°30' W). The stream crosses moderately sloping terrain with shallow silty loams that support mesquite and grasses.
