Alamo Lake State Park

Alamo Lake State Park is a 4,900-acre state park in western Arizona, located about 38 miles north of Wenden.  It is accessed via dirt road off either US 60 to the south or US 93 to the east.  Owing to its remoteness and lack of paved access roads, the park is often considered one of the "best kept secrets" of the state park system.

You will find the park just 38 miles north of Wenden and US 60.  Alamo Lake is a renowned large mouth bass fishing spot.  This man-made lake controls flooding on the Bill Williams River.

The park is 30 miles West of the Colorado River. Campers and boaters find a complete store. The marina includes boat rentals.

Alamo Lake, located on the Bill Williams River where the Big Sandy River and Santa Maria River come together, was created with the completion of Alamo Dam in 1968. The Army Corps of Engineers designed the earthen dam primarily for flood control.

Campers discover 250 campsites with a 15-day stay limit. The campgrounds at Alamo Lake have tremendous views of the lake and the surrounding mountains.
