LONG CREEK (Wilbarger County). Long Creek rises one-half mile from the Baylor county line in southeastern Wilbarger County (at 33°51' N, 99°08' W) and flows northeast for thirteen miles to its mouth on Beaver Creek, just across the county line in southwestern Wichita County (at 33°54' N, 98°55' W). The stream passes through locally flat terrain surrounded by moderately steep slopes, and the surface clays and sandy loams support water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses.
