KELLY CREEK (Donley County). Kelly Creek rises seven miles west of Clarendon in central western Donley County (at 34°56' N, 100°58' W) and runs northeast for five miles to its mouth on the Salt Fork of the Red River, six miles south of Howardwick (at 35°00' N, 100°54' W). The lower portion of the stream is now backed up by the waters of Greenbelt Reservoir. Kelly Creek flows through flat to rolling terrain, with some local escarpments, surfaced by deep, fine sandy loams that support mesquite brush and grasses.
