SPRING CREEK (Carson County). Spring Creek rises in east central Carson County (at 35°31' N, 101°16' W) and flows northward twenty miles until it empties into the Canadian River in the east central part of Hutchinson County (at 35°48' N, 101°15' W). It flows through flat, rolling, and steep terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support cacti, brush, and grasses. Once part of the Diamond F ranges, it drains a vast ranching and oil producing area.
