Alamo Lake State Park is located in a remote area of Central Arizona approximately 2.5 hours west of the Phoenix metro area. Temperatures in early November and late April rise above 80F. Nighttime temperatures at the same time drop into the 40's. Summer temperatures exceed 100F during the day. The desert vegetation surrounding the lake is sparse. Orienteering courses set around Alamo Lake take advantage of the very runnable terrain. The lake is quite popular for fishing, while the distance from major population centers makes the area excellent for nighttime star gazing. We hope you'll join us for events we offer at the lake.
