KICKAPOO CREEK (Young County). Kickapoo Creek, an intermittent stream fed by a number of small springs, rises in south central Young County (at 33°03' N, 98°40' W) and runs south for two miles to its mouth on the Brazos River, two miles northeast of South Bend (at 33°02' N, 98°39' W). The springs have gradually diminished in size but remained slightly active in the early 1980s. The local moderately to steeply sloping hills are surfaced by shallow, stony, clay and sandy loams that support oak, mesquite, and grasses.
