SPRING CREEK (Archer County). Spring Creek rises two miles south of Megargel in extreme southwestern Archer County (at 33°26' N, 98°57' W) and runs south for eight miles, through southwest Archer, northwest Young, and northeast Throckmorton counties, over rolling hills of clay and sandy loams covered by scrub brush, mesquite, cacti, and grasses. It enters the Brazos River three miles south of the Spring Creek community and just west of the Throckmorton-Young county line (at 33°20' N, 98°58' W). Indian Springs, a popular pioneer camping spot, was located on Spring Creek in northwest Young County. The springs, still active in 1980, were named for an early Indian Village.
