WILFONG CREEK. Wilfong Creek rises near the Kiowa Park oilfield three miles southwest of Kiowa Peak in northeast Stonewall County six miles south of the King county line (at 33°20' N, 100°05' W) and runs south for ten miles to its mouth on the Salt Fork of the Brazos River, eight miles north of Old Glory (at 33°15' N, 100°05' W). The sources of Wilfong Creek are a series of small springs that remained active in the late 1970s. The creek crosses rolling to steep slopes surfaced by shallow clay and sandy loam that supports juniper, cacti, and sparse grasses.
