LOST CREEK (Wichita County). Lost Creek rises 3½ miles southwest of Clara in north central Wichita County (at 34°04' N, 98°43' W) and runs south four miles to its mouth on the North Fork Buffalo Creek Reservoir, ten miles southwest of Clara (at 34°00' N, 98°44' W). The surrounding flat to rolling terrain is surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. For most of the county's history the Lost Creek area has been used as crop and range land. Until 1964, when the North Fork Buffalo Creek Reservoir was constructed, the stream emptied into the North Fork of Buffalo Creek.
