IVANHOE CREEK. Ivanhoe Creek rises in the Follett oilfield just north of Follett in extreme northeastern Lipscomb County (at 36°27' N, 100°11' W) and runs fourteen miles southeast before reaching the Oklahoma state line; its mouth is on Wolf Creek in Ellis County, Oklahoma (at 36°17' N, 99°57' W). The stream traverses flat to rolling terrain characterized by deep, fine, sandy loam soils. Local vegetation is primarily brush and grasses. Ivanhoe Creek was part of the old YL Ranch properties.
