Located in southwestern Oklahoma, the park was established as a state park by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1937. It's known for its unique granite landscape and Lake Altus-Lugert.
In 1955, it became part of Quartz Mountain Nature Park along with two other parks: Baldy Point State Park and Lake Altus State Game Reserve. The area is now collectively referred to as Quartz Mountain Resort Arts & Conference Center or simply "Quartz Mountain".
The resort has been home to various arts institutes since 1978 when Oklahoma Summer Arts Institute (OSAI) first began hosting annual sessions there.
Visitors can enjoy activities like hiking, rock climbing or bird watching while appreciating stunning views over rugged terrain.
