Where are we going today?

Alamo Lake State Park is one of Arizona's best kept secrets. The stark desert beauty is reflected off the water. Cacti dot the mountainous landscape that surround the lake. Nestled in the Bill Williams River Valley away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, Alamo Lake State Park offers outdoor fun, premier bass fishing, rest and relaxation.

For nature lovers, spring rains bring an abundance of wild flowers and the lake environment attracts a variety of wildlife year round, including bald and golden eagles, waterfowl, foxes, coyotes, mule deer and wild burros.

Plus stargazers are sure to enjoy the unbelievable view of the night sky with the nearest city lights some forty miles away!

If you're between ages 6 and 12, you can become a Junior Ranger at Alamo Lake State Park! Pledge to do your part to help preserve the beauty of the park for everyone to enjoy, download the activity pack before you go.

    Loved the wild donkeys. They might keep you awake, but I liked the sound of them at night. All the campsites are not marked which was frustrating but once we were settled in section e we were pleased with the view. Fairly quiet but a lot of generators. Very clean and well maintained. Friendly ranger.

    Your out in the middle of nowhere (make sure your fuel tanks are full or close to that) We don't fish but it a great bass fishing spot.

    The staff were great and the facilities were kept very clean.
    My only complaint was that the lower parking area was closed off so to get to the lake side was not easy and a really long walk with my board to carry. The boat ramp needed to be closed because of the water level but the parking could...Read More
