LAKE CREEK (Archer County). Lake Creek rises three miles south of the western shore of Lake Wichita in northeastern Archer County (at 33°46' N, 98°36' W) and runs northeast for nineteen miles to its mouth on the Little Wichita River, a mile north of the Wichita Falls Dam on the north shore of Lake Arrowhead in western Clay County (at 33°47' N, 98°21' W). It is surrounded by generally flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. The area has served as crop and range land.
