ONION CREEK (Archer County). Onion Creek rises in south central Archer County (at 33°28' N, 98°41' W) seven miles southeast of Archer City and runs northeast for twenty miles to its mouth (at 33°40' N, 98°30' W) on the Little Wichita River, 7½ miles northeast of Archer City near Scotland. It traverses gently rolling terrain, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support scrub brush, mesquite, cacti, and grasses. The area has been used as rangeland.
