DOZIER CREEK (Collingsworth County). Dozier Creek rises in northern Collingsworth County (at 35°09' N, 100°21' W) and runs south for six miles to its mouth on Big Sandy Creek (at 35°01' N, 100°20' W), which flows into the Salt Fork of the Red River in the northwestern part of the county. The stream, once part of the Rocking Chair Ranch properties, was named for a cowboy who had a line camp on its banks in the late 1880s. It traverses flat to gently rolling terrain surfaced by loose sand that supports scrub brush and grasses.
