WILLOW CREEK (Hutchinson County). Willow Creek rises in the northeast corner of Hutchinson County one-half mile west of the Roberts county line (at 36°01' N, 101°06' W) and flows south for nine miles to its mouth on the Canadian River, five miles northeast of Adobe Walls, just inside Roberts County (at 35°56' N, 101°05' W). It was once part of Henry W. Cresswell's Bar CC Ranchqv ranges, and its drainage area is a sandy aquifer recharge zone of local escarpments and deep sandy loam soil.
