These photos of Craterville Park and Lake Altus-Lugert are from the late 1950’s.
Originally located north of Cache in the Wichita Mountains, Craterville was reincarnated at Lake Lugert in the mid 1950’s, closing in the late 1960’s. I was too young to remember Craterville, but I do remember the lake in it’s heyday. In the ’70’s you could water ski from the dam all the way to the north bridge. A few pieces of the park were left at that time: horseback rides, skating, trampolines, go-carts.
