GYPSUM CREEK (Armstrong County). Gypsum Creek, also known as Gip Creek, rises in the breaks of southern Armstrong County (at 34°53' N, 101°18' W) and runs south for seven miles to its mouth on the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River, near the Briscoe county line (at 34°45' N, 101°18' W). The area terrain is broken by moderately steep slopes with locally high relief. Soils in the vicinity are made up of shallow to moderately deep silt loams that support rangeland grasses and mesquite. The creek remains part of the JA Ranch.
