GOOD CREEK. Good Creek rises at U.S. Highway 70 a half mile north of Matador Tank in eastern Cottle County (at 34°05' N, 100°03' W) and runs southeast for twenty-two miles to its mouth on the North Fork of the Wichita River, five miles southwest of Foard City (at 33°52' N, 99°54' W). It is joined seven miles northwest of Foard City by Little Good Creek, which rises six miles west of Crowell (at 33°59' N, 99°51' W) and runs southwest seven miles to its mouth on Good Creek (at 33°55' N, 99°55' W). The surrounding rolling to steep hills are surfaced by shallow to moderately deep clay and sandy loams that support juniper, cacti, mesquite, oak, scrub brush, and sparse grass.
