Quartz Mountain Nature Park
A short drive southwest of Hobart on the shores of Lake Altus-Lugert, the Quartz Mountain Nature Park offers golfing, fishing, boating, bird watching and cycling. Other attractions include an amusement park, rock climbing, hiking and more. A total of five camping areas in the park offer approximately 119 RV sites, nine of which have full hookups, as well as 99 primitive campsites and eight cabins with kitchenettes. On-site dump stations are also available. Eagles watches are available January through February, and the seasonal ATV riding area is available April through October and features approximately 400 acres of land and two miles of trails.
Rock climbers and rappellers will find challenging routes in the climbing area of Baldy Point, which is located on the western end of the Wichita Mountain range and rises 300 feet above the prairie. Climbers will carefully contemplate their next move on Baldy Point's granite face as they ascend to the top.
Less adventurous visitors will enjoy the many trails offered in the Quartz Mountain Nature Park, including a biking trail and interpretive trail. Trails in the Baldy Point Climbing Area of the park range from easy to strenuous, winding around and over granite boulders. A trail that climbs the face of Quartz Mountain offers the ultimate reward: incredible views.
