SOUTH DOKEGOOD CREEK. South Dokegood Creek rises on the eastern edge of the Caprock escarpment in northwest Garza County (at 33°19' N, 101°30' W). The intermittent stream, much of which is within the Buenos oilfield, flows east for ten miles before entering the North Fork of the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River, twelve miles north of Post (at 33°19' N, 101°24' W). The surrounding terrain is steep to moderately steep hills surfaced with shallow stony clay and sandy loams. Vegetation in the creek basin consists primarily of live oak, mesquite, and grasses. The creek descends about 400 feet over the course of its journey.
