OX YOKE CREEK. Ox Yoke Creek rises five miles east of Masterson Ranch Headquarters in northeastern King County (at 33°44' N, 100°03' W) and runs southeast for eight miles to its mouth on the South Wichita River, near the eastern county line (at 33°39' N, 100°01' W). It crosses an area of rolling prairie and steep slopes surfaced by shallow clay and sandy loams that support juniper, cacti, and sparse grass.
