HOLLAR CREEK. Hollar (or Camp Hollar) Creek rises in extreme northeastern Dickens County (at 33°47' N, 100°32' W) and runs east for five miles to its mouth on Cottonwood Creek, four miles southeast of Dumont in northwestern King County (at 33°47' N, 100°28' W). The creek traverses an area with moderately steep slopes and locally high relief, surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loams that support mesquite and grasses. A major source for the creek was Camp Hollar Springs in northwestern King County. The springs remained slightly active for many years but by 1979 had stopped flowing. In the 1980s the creek was a draw with an intermittent stream.
