Campsite Reviews: Quartz Mountain Nature Park, OK

Quartz Mountain Nature Park is in the southwest corner of Oklahoma. With deer frolicking at every corner and gorgeous trails abounding, we loved our stay at this secluded mountain haven.

What to Expect

Located on the western end of the Wichita Mountains, Quartz Mountain State Park is about a half hour from the closest town. The park offers golfing, fishing, boating, bird watching, cycling, and even a nearby amusement park. We visited in late October and the park was sparse with visitors.

Camp hosts suggested the wandering deer were a nuisance but we loved watching them surround our RV. The dogs found it particularly entertaining.

Facilities

There are over 100 RV sites as well as 100 camping sites. We found a spot tucked into the trees and only a few paces from the sprawling Lake Altus. There are a dozen sites with full-hookups, those were all occupied, so we found a site with water and electric, but the dump station was right in front of our site, so it was almost like having full-hookups.

Amenities

There really was no end to the entertainment on site. We loved exploring the campus; we found plenty of trails and nooks to read or get lost in the beauty of it all.

Nearby Attractions

One night we followed the sunset and stopped in Altus to grab burgers and we found it to be a pretty active town for its size. Another night we ventured in the opposite direction to Granite to grab snacks. Both towns have everything you need but with all that Quartz Mountain has to offer, we realized there was more than enough entertainment offered in our own backyard.

Climbing the boulders at the New Horizon Trail nearby. Bring good hiking shoes.

Final Thoughts

We loved staying a week at Quartz Mountain Nature Park. I was surprised to see such beauty in this part of the state and would absolutely suggest a visit if you are in the area.
