CHILTIPIN CREEK (Duval County). Chiltipin Creek rises sixteen miles northwest of San Diego in the Strake oilfield in northeastern Duval County (at 28°00' N, 98°25' W) and runs southeast for thirty miles to its mouth on San Fernando Creek, just northeast of Alice in central Jim Wells County (at 27°47' N, 98°02' W). It traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, rolling hills, and local escarpments, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, grasses, and some scrub brush.
