LONG CREEK (Clay County). Long Creek rises four miles northeast of Dean in northwestern Clay County (at 33°59' N, 98°17' W) and flows southeast for nineteen miles to its mouth on the Little Wichita River, eight miles northeast of Henrietta in northeastern Clay County (at 33°53' N, 98°06' W). The terrain is flat, marked with shallow depressions, and surfaced largely with clay and sandy loams. The area drained by the stream-along which water-tolerant hardwood trees, conifers, and grasses grow-has served as crop and range land.
