LOST CREEK (Collingsworth County). Lost Creek rises (at 35°08' N, 100°04' W) in northeastern Collingsworth County and runs east five miles, crosses the Texas-Oklahoma boundary line into Beckham County, Oklahoma, and continues south through Beckham County to its mouth (at 35°05' N, 100°01' W) on the Elm Fork of the Red River. Its upper portion was included in the Rocking Chair Ranch properties. The stream passes through rolling to steep terrain, with loamy soil supporting juniper, cacti, and grasses.
