LONG CREEK (Wichita County). Long Creek rises in extreme west central Wichita County (at 33°51' N, 99°08' W) a mile northeast of Electra and runs north for eight miles to its mouth (at 33°54' N, 98°55' W) on China Creek, seven miles north of Electra and two miles south of the Oklahoma border. It is intermittent in its upper reaches. The stream traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support conifers, water-tolerant hardwood trees, and various grasses. The area historically has served as crop and range land, though some urban development is present as well.
