INDIAN CREEK (Donley County). Indian Creek rises seven miles southwest of Hedley in southeastern Donley County (at 34°50' N, 100°43' W) and runs southeast for eighteen miles to its mouth on the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River, fifteen miles southeast of Lakeview in Hall County (at 34°35' N, 100°36' W). Once within the Morrison brothers' Doll Baby Ranch, the creek remains part of a vast ranching area. The terrain along Indian Creek is characterized by moderately steep slopes with locally high relief. Native vegetation consists of mesquites and grasses in shallow to moderately deep silt loams.
