This Corps lake is managed by Arizona State Parks. The project name links to the Arizona State Parks web pages. One of the best bass lakes in Arizona. Also, good wildlife viewing opportunities. The Bill Williams River Basin is of early historical interest. The project adjoins BLM lands. N of Wenden, off US-60.  An oasis for anglers and nature lovers, Alamo Lake 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 large-mouth bass and catfish. Its upgraded campground features developed sites and a well-stocked marina store with boat rentals. An abundance of outdoor activities includes wildlife watching and hiking against a backdrop of the picturesque Rawhide and Buckskin mountains. Wildlife include quail, deer, coyote, bald eagles, and the area's trademark...wild burros. Access is via 38 miles of paved road. Turn north at Wenden off U.S. Route 60.
