ROUGH CREEK (Coke County). Rough Creek rises eight miles northwest of Robert Lee in the northern part of Coke County (at 32°04' N, 100°34' W) and flows southwest for eight miles before emptying into the Colorado River (at 31°58' N, 100°35' W). The terrain is flat to gently sloping and surfaced with moderately deep to shallow silt loams that support mesquite and grasses along the creek bed.
