GODWIN CREEK. Godwin Creek rises four miles northwest of Westover in east central Baylor County (at 33°32' N, 99°03' W) and runs northeast for twelve miles to its mouth on the North Fork of the Little Wichita River, three miles north of Farm Road 422 in western Archer County (at 33°37' N, 98°56' W). The stream traverses flat to rolling terrain with sandy soils that support bunch grasses and some oak mottes. Much of the creek's drainage area is on oilfield land. Godwin Creek is fed by numerous seeps and springs. Early Indian sites are in the area.
