KILDOOGAN CREEK. Kildoogan Creek rises fifteen miles southwest of Roby in southwestern Fisher County (at 32°33' N, 100°29' W) and runs southeast for nine miles, crossing into Nolan County, where it passes through Santa Fe Lake just north of Sweetwater before reaching its mouth on Sweetwater Creek, just east of Sweetwater in northern Nolan County (at 32°30' N, 100°21' W). The creek traverses a flood-prone area surrounded by steep slopes. The local clay and sandy loam soils support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
