OAKS CREEK. Oaks Creek rises in southern Donley County (at 34°49' N, 100°46' W) seven miles southwest of Hedley and runs southeast for fifteen miles to its mouth (at 34°35' N, 100°38' W) on the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River, in central Hall County ten miles south of Lakeview. The headquarters of the Oak Creek Ranch is near the head of the stream in Donley County. The area terrain is characterized by moderate to steep slopes with locally high relief. Native vegetation consists primarily of mesquite shrubs and grasses in shallow to moderately deep silt loams.
