COLE CREEK. Cole Creek rises five miles northeast of Electra in northwestern Wichita County (at 34°04' N, 98°51' W) and runs northeast eleven miles to its mouth on Tenth Cavalry Creek, ten miles northeast of Electra and one mile south of the Oklahoma border (at 34°08' N, 98°48' W). The surrounding generally flat terrain is interspersed with local depressions and moderately steep slopes and is surfaced by moderately deep to shallow silt and clay loams that support mesquite, water-tolerant hardwood trees, and grasses. The area historically has served as crop and range land, although some urban development is present as well.
