Bitter Lake Creek rises four miles south of Northfield in northeast Motley County (at 34°14' N, 100°35' W) and flows north for five miles to its mouth on the North Pease River, near the Motley-Hall county line (at 34°19' N, 100°35' W). The stream is north of the Matador Ranch lands. It crosses an area of moderately steep slopes with locally high relief and a surface of shallow to moderately deep silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
