WILLOW CREEK (Dickens County). Willow Creek rises twenty miles northeast of Dickens in the extreme eastern part of Dickens County (at 33°43' N, 100°31' W) and runs southeast for twenty-one miles to its mouth on the South Wichita River, eight miles east of Guthrie (at 33°38' N, 100°11' W). It crosses moderately steep slopes and locally high relief that are surfaced by silt loams that support mesquite and grasses. In the stream's lower reaches the terrain becomes rolling with steep slopes surfaced by clay and sand that supports juniper, cacti, and sparse grass.
