LAKE CREEK (Collingsworth County). Lake Creek rises in north central Collingsworth County (at 35°06' N, 100°17' W) and runs south for ten miles into the Salt Fork of the Red River (at 35°00' N, 100°18' W). The stream rises in flat to gently rolling terrain with local depressions. Shallow clay loams support scrub brush and grasses along its banks. At its mouth, the terrain is characterized by rolling to steep slopes, and the soil varies from shallow clay loam to sandy loam, with some stony patches. Vegetation consists of juniper, cacti, and sparse grasses. The stream was formerly part of the Rocking Chair Ranch properties.
