Frisco Creek rises near Stratford in northwestern Sherman County (at 36°22' N, 102°09' W) and runs northeast for thirteen miles, across Sherman County and the northwestern corner of Hansford County, into Texas County, Oklahoma, where it drains into the North Canadian River (at 36°34' N, 101°23' W). The stream crosses flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments, surfaced by deep, fine sandy loams that support brush and grasses.
