Altus is located in southwest Oklahoma in Jackson County (of which it is the county seat) along U.S. Highway 62. Tom Steed Lake and Great Plains State Park lie to the northeast of town.

Recreational opportunities include 6,260-acre Lake Altus-Lugert, Quartz Mountain State Park and an 18-hole golf course.

Those desiring a post-high school educational experience can attend Western Oklahoma State College, the area's community college.
