The river has three branches. The North Fork arises six miles east of East Afton in northeastern Dickens County and flows east 100 miles through King, Cottle, and Foard Counties to meet the South Fork and form the Wichita River proper in northeastern Knox County. The Middle Fork rises in north central King County and flows northeast thirty-five miles to join the North Fork in southwestern Foard County. The South Fork rises in eastern Dickens County and flows east through King and Knox Counties for approximately 100 miles to its confluence with the North Fork near the Knox-Baylor County line in northeastern Knox County. The Wichita River proper flows northeast across Baylor, Archer, Wichita and Clay Counties for ninety miles to join the Red River just east of Henrietta, Texas.
