DRY DUCK CREEK. Dry Duck Creek, little more than a wet-weather ravine, heads seven miles northeast of Spur in south central Dickens County (at 33°29' N, 100°43' W). The streambed runs south for fifteen miles to its mouth on Duck Creek, in northeast Kent County three miles southeast of Gilpin (at 33°23' N, 100°41' W). The local terrain is flat to gently sloping, with sandy soil that supports scrub brush and grasses. Dry Duck Creek runs through the Croton Creek oilfield.
