KICKAPOO CREEK (Archer County). Kickapoo Creek rises a mile west of Megargel in southwestern Archer County (at 33°28' N, 98°58' W) and runs northeast for fifteen miles to its mouth on Lake Kickapoo (at 33°39' N, 98°48' W). Kickapoo Creek emptied into the North Fork of the Little Wichita River until the mid-1940s, when the lake was built. The creek is intermittent in its upper reaches. It traverses gently rolling terrain, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support scrub brush, mesquite, cacti, and grasses. For most of the county's history, the Kickapoo Creek area has been used as crop and range land.
