This lake impounds the North Fork of the Red River, which is the boundary between Greer and Kiowa Counties. This boundary was contended between Oklahoma and Texas and in 1896 the U.S. Supreme Court decreed that Greer County, which today makes up Harmon, Jackson and Greer Counties, belongs to Oklahoma. The reservoir and adjacent Quartz Mountain Lodge provide a major recreation spot in southwest Oklahoma. The park offers a variety of recreational activities, and the rugged granite hills and fascinating geologic history promise a unique experience for the hiking enthusiast. The Altus-Lugert public hunting area consists of approximately 3,600 acres at the upper end of the lake. Food for the wildlife is provided by lands planted with maize, millet, and winter wheat. Camping and cabin facilities are available at the nearby Quartz Mountain Lodge. Additional facilities include boat ramps, picnic areas, designated campsites, group shelter, restrooms, swimming beach, electric outlets, playground, cabins, enclosed fishing dock, and swimming pool.
