This Park is most elusive. It seems that a house for tourists is open on the site but nothing more is known at this time....Excuse the Map..the location is North-NorthWest of Cache, Oklahoma...


Craterville, named for a meteor crater in the Wichita Mountains, existed in the present-day Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. After the refuge took over the land, the park moved to a location two miles east of Lugert. (this location and information seems elusive) Besides the usual amusement park amenities, Craterville hosted rodeos and the All-Indian Fair and Exposition that began in 1924 and moved to Anadarko in 1935 as the American Indian Exposition. Craterville closed in the mid-1950s, and the land was bought by Fort Sill. Eagle Park opened a year later. A little north of the defunct Craterville site, Eagle Park endured until 1986. It had the usual amusement park fare, but transplanted over twenty historic buildings from Comanche County, including Quanah Parker's 1884 "Star House."
