DAVIDSON CANYON CREEK. Davidson Canyon Creek rises five miles north of U.S. Highway 82 and three miles west of the Dickens-King county line in east central Dickens County (at 33°41' N, 100°34' W) and runs south for six miles through Davidson Canyon to its mouth on the South Wichita River, near U.S. Highway 82 (at 33°36' N, 100°32' W). Both the creek and the canyon were named for a local family.
