RAGGEDY CREEK. Raggedy Creek rises at Dixie Mound three miles west of Crowell in Central Foard County (at 33°58' N, 99°49' W) and runs fourteen miles northeast to its mouth on the Pease River, eight miles north of Crowell (at 34°06' N, 99°42' W). The creek is dammed two miles northwest of Crowell to form Crowell City Lake. At the creek's headwaters steep to moderately sloping hills are surfaced by shallow, stony sandy and clay loams that support mesquite, oak, and grasses; in the lower reaches the flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments is surfaced by deep, fine sandy loam that supports hardwoods, conifers, brush, and grasses.
