STEVENS CREEK (WICHITA COUNTY)
STEVENS CREEK (Wichita County). Stevens (Stephens) Creek rises seven miles northwest of Iowa Park in central Wichita County (at 34°03' N, 98°43' W) and runs south for eleven miles to its mouth on Buffalo Creek, one mile southwest of Iowa Park (at 33°57' N, 98°42' W). It crosses flat terrain with local shallow depressions surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. The region historically has served as crop and range land. The creek is interrupted by Lake Iowa Park just northwest of Iowa Park.
