Quartz Mountain Resort and Conference Center


            LONE WOLF, Okla. (March 26, 2001)  Quartz Mountain Resort Arts and Conference Center opened its doors to the public today  - Oklahoma’s newest meeting and retreat treasure.

Completing $12.2 million in reconstruction and expansion, the Quartz Mountain Resort stands amid the glorious granite boulders of the Wichita Mountains.  Its setting and state-of-the-art renovations make the Quartz Mountain Resort an ideal spot for both business and leisure travelers.

“The Wichita Mountains have been a meeting place for over 150 years from the Apache and Comanche, to the Cheyenne and Arapaho.  Now these mountains are home to a new premier meeting place and we are delighted to welcome travelers from every corner of the globe to experience the uniqueness of our mountain.  Whatever your agenda, we can accommodate you,” said John Sharpe, General Manager of Quartz Mountain Resort Arts and Conference Center.  “This is not just a place to stay; it is a true getaway.”

Located in Quartz Mountain State Park, the 118-room, custom-designed lodge overlooks Lake Altus-Lugert.  Once the former dwelling grounds of the Kiowa and Comanche Indians, Quartz Mountain Resort is steeped in a rich heritage.

The weary find peace in the serene setting of Quartz Mountain Resort and full service amenities.  The outdoor enthusiast can hike, explore biking trails, play an 18-hole golf course, fish, and enjoy water sports and naturalist programs. Engaged couples, tour groups and business conferences can find experienced meeting and wedding coordinators on hand and a wide range of meeting rooms that accommodate six to 700 guests.  Additional cabins are available for rent as well – ideal for families or larger travel groups. 

The original property, Quartz Mountain Lodge, was built in the late 1950’s by the State of Oklahoma and managed by the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department.  The Lodge burned in a fire in February 1995.  Following the fire, Oklahoma’s State Legislature authorized the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Commission to rebuild.

In response to its close relationship with the Oklahoma Arts Institute and its traditional Summer Art Institute held annually, a 700-seat performance hall complete with an amphitheater and practice rooms was built.  For the first time since 1995, the 2001 Summer Art Institute will return to Quartz Mountain in June.

Performing Arts Center

The Resort will feature $2 million in art on permanent loan from the Oklahoma Arts Institute featuring artists such as Allan Houser, Fritz Scholder, Mike Larsen, Don Nice and Dan Kiacz.  Governor Frank Keating will unveil the Quartz Mountain Art Collection during a special tour and briefing on April 26, 2001.  The Collection features 300 works in the media of photography, drawing, painting and sculpture.

Quartz Mountain Resort is state-owned by the Oklahoma City Tourism and Recreation Department and privately managed by Interstate Hotels.
