MIDDLE CREEK. Middle Creek, previously known as Bufords Creek, rises seven miles northeast of East Afton in northeastern Dickens County (at 33°47' N, 100°39' W) and runs east for thirteen miles to its mouth on the North Wichita River, a mile from Dumont and the King county line (at 33°48' N, 100°31' W). It crosses an area of moderately steep, sloping to flat terrain surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support mesquite, grasses, and some hardwoods.
