Below Lake Altus-Lugert Dam


Discover the rugged beauty of Quartz Mountain Resort Park, one of Oklahoma's original seven state parks. Adjacent to Lake Altus-Lugert, the park is surrounded by the stark beauty of rough granite hills and outcroppings--remnants of the Wichita Mountain Range--whose peaks once stood over 20,000 feet tall. The park's fascinating geological history dating back millions of years provides a real treat for hiking and geology enthusiasts--the highlight of which may be climbing 1,950 feet high. Excellent rock climbing, rappelling but bring your own climbing and rappelling equipment.  The park's rugged landscape is reflected in the sparkling clear waters of Lake Altus-Lugert, a 6,260 acre haven for fishing, boating, and water sports.  

Quartz Mountain State Park is in a region of the state that has the distinction of having been under several flags: It was Spanish property from the late 1500's until included in the Louisiana Province of France; then it was sold to the United States and after that claimed by Mexico; and then by the Republic of Texas, until in 1896, it was decided that it belonged to the United States and assigned to the Oklahoma Territory. A long list of famous names are associated with the area including General Custer and Comanche Chief, Quannah Parker.

In 1927, a dam was built across the north branch of the Red River to provide a water source for Altus, and the Civilian Conservation Corps completed area development. Today, this 4,624 acre park is a very popular recreation destination, offering visitors spectacular scenery, adventurous hiking opportunities, fishing and water sports, swimming, picnicking, camping, paddle boating, canoeing, miniature golf, off-road vehicle and motorcycling opportunities, festivals, bazaars, performing arts programs, and 18 hole golf.
