SOAP CREEK (Baylor County). Soap Creek rises a mile north of U.S. Highway 82 and twelve miles northwest of Seymour in extreme western Baylor County, a mile east of the Knox county line (at 33°39' N, 99°31' W). The stream flows northeast for five miles to its mouth on the Wichita River, four miles southeast of the Baylor-Knox-Foard boundary (at 33°41' N, 99°27' W). The main source for the creek is Soap Springs, located three miles west of the Red Springs community. Soap Creek contains stretches of flowing water, most of which are near its mouth. The terrain is flat with local shallow depressions and surfaced by clay and sandy loams, which support water-resistant hardwoods and grasses.
