Hotel at a Glance: Quartz Mountain Resort Arts & Conference Center
Quartz Mountain Nature Park surrounds this rustic lodge-style resort, and the property is set up for its guests to enjoy the great outdoors. Paintings of the beautiful surrounding landscape can be found throughout the lodge, set amid exposed timber beams and fireplaces in a sitting area. If you want to see the setting up close, it’s easy—ask a hotel staff member for advice on hiking one of Quartz Mountain’s rugged trails, or cast out for walleye and largemouth bass from the banks of Lake Altus-Lugert.
Sundance Café: Dine on grilled rib eye and pan-seared tilapia amid crackling fireplaces and lake views; alfresco seating is available if weather permits.
Tee off at the nearby 18-hole, par 71 Quartz Mountain Golf Club.
Room with a view: Look out onto Lake Altus-Lugert or Quartz Mountain from guest rooms accented with log-frame furniture.

Lone Wolf, Oklahoma: Outdoor Adventure near Historic Prairie Towns
Lone Wolf is a relatively quiet town—its population hovers somewhere around 450 people—but that is part of its appeal. it’s set near Quartz Mountain Nature Park, whose 4,300 acres feature mountain trails and the glittering Lake Altus. It makes for some great photo ops, but the best way to take in the surroundings is by going on an adventure. Water-skiing, boating, and eagle-watching are some popular activities.
About a half hour south of Lone Wolf, the city of Altus has the Museum of the Western Prairie, which documents the adventuresome spirit of the prairie’s pioneers.
