Alamo Lake

Alamo Lake could qualify as an "off the beaten path" place. It is located a fair distance away from any main roads out in the desert. I am sure that is a big reason that it does not get more attendance which is too bad because it is a beautiful park, with some good fishing. It was scheduled to be closed for budget reasons but was saved when the locals raised a fuss (and some money).

Alamo Dam

Alamo Lake is located on the Bill Williams River where the Big Sandy and Santa Maria Rivers come together. It was formed in 1968 when the US Army Corps of Engineers built the Alamo Dam. Unlike some lakes in the US, Alamo Lake has increased in size.

Wildlife

Fishing is reported to be very good here. I saw a variety of birds and other animals here too. There are also Wild Burros that wander around the area. Keep your eyes open for them while driving.
