LONG CREEK (Archer County). Long Creek rises in north central Archer County (at 33°43' N, 98°42' W) three miles south of Dad's Corner and runs east for six miles to its mouth (at 33°42' N, 98°35' W) on Bluff Creek, ten miles west of Scotland. The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It traverses gently rolling terrain surfaced by sandy loams that support post oak and grasses. The Long Creek area has historically been used as rangeland.
