Alamo Lake State Park
Description - The drive to the lake offers beautiful rugged mountain views and a desert floor sprinkled with saguaros. An oasis for anglers and nature lovers, Alamo Lake State Park offers classic Sonoran Desert scenery and the promise of uncrowded views. Principally a flood control reservoir, the park is located on the Bill Williams River about 30 miles before it enters the Colorado River. Although its water level fluctuates sharply, the lake teems with largemouth bass and catfish. The lake is known as one of the best bass fishing lakes in the state. Alamo Lake sits against a backdrop of the picturesque Rawhide and Buckskin mountains. Wildlife includes, quail, deer, coyote, bald eagles, and the area's trademark wild burros

Climate - The climate of Arizona varies greatly with elevation. The low elevations experience a desert climate. During the summer months, expect very hot temperatures with afternoon thunderstorms possible especially in July and August. Daytime high temperatures can exceed 115 degrees. Winter brings moderate temperatures to the low elevations, with warm days and cool to cold nights. Winter is a good time to experience these normally snow free areas. Fall and spring are transitional periods and can also be nice times to visit these desert regions.
