SAND CREEK (Collingsworth County). Sand Creek, fed by Sand Springs, rises one-half mile north of Wellington in southeastern Collingsworth County and flows southeast for twenty-four miles, through Childress County, Texas, and Harmon County, Oklahoma, to its mouth on the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River. The creek flows through flat to rolling terrain with shallow sandy soils. Vegetation consists primarily of mesquite and grasses.
