ROUGH CREEK (Wichita County). Rough Creek rises two miles south of Electra in extreme west central Wichita County (at 33°59' N, 98°55' W) and runs south for six miles to its mouth on Beaver Creek, five miles south of Electra (at 33°55' N, 98°55' W). The surrounding flat to gently sloping terrain is surfaced by moderately deep to shallow silt loam that supports mesquite trees and grasses. The region has served as crop and range land, although some urban development is present as well.
