Calf Creek rises ten miles east of Howardwick in north central Donley County (at 35°04' N, 100°44' W) and runs south for three miles to its mouth on Saddlers Creek, thirteen miles northeast of Clarendon (at 35°00' N, 100°46' W). The stream flows through an area that was part of the RO range, where the land is flat to rolling with local escarpments. Native vegetation consists primarily of mesquite shrubs and grasses in soil composed of mostly deep, fine sandy loam.
