LELIA LAKE CREEK. Lelia Lake Creek, sometimes called Lake Creek, rises in east and west branches in south central Donley County (at 34°54' N, 100°45' W) and flows northeast for fourteen miles to its mouth on the Salt Fork of the Red River (at 34°59' N, 100°39' W). The terrain flanking the creekbed is flat to rolling and broken with local escarpments, the soils are mostly deep, fine sandy loams, and the chief vegetation is brush and grasses. Near the confluence of the two forks on U.S. Highway 287 is Lelia Lake, which feeds the creek and gives it and the nearby town its name. Lelia Lake Creek was in the southern edge of the RO Ranch.
