WILLIS CREEK (DONLEY COUNTY)
WILLIS CREEK (Donley County). Willis Creek rises thirty miles northeast of Howardwick in northeastern Donley County (at 33°09' N, 100°33' W) and runs southeast for eleven miles to its mouth on the Salt Fork of the Red River, fifteen miles west of Lutie in Collingsworth County (at 38°01' N, 100°26' W). The stream was once part of the Rocking Chair and Mill Iron ranch properties. It flows through terrain which varies from rolling to steeply sloped. Native vegetation consists of juniper, cacti, and sparse grasses in shallow clay loams and sandy loams.
