CORRAL CREEK (Potter County). Corral Creek rises in northwestern Potter County (at 35°37' N, 102°00' W) and runs southwest for eight miles to its mouth on the Canadian River (at 35°28' N, 102°05' W). It traverses an area of densely dissected gullies and low hills where shallow soils support sparse vegetation. Near the mouth of the creek, the terrain becomes flat to rolling with local escarpments and is surfaced by deep, fine sandy loam. Though some hardwoods border the creek at its mouth, the primary vegetation continues to be brush and grasses. The stream was formerly on the property of the LIT and LX ranchesqqv and was on the land taken over by the Robert Benjamin Masterson interests in 1906.
