Alamo Dam State Park is a fee area, but there are several free camping areas around Lake Alamo. Scenic views of Lake Alamo with cactus and rugged mountains in the background.

Palmerita Road
Harsh desert environment, be prepared with water and proper supplies.

DIRECTIONS:
From Hwy.60
Turn north at Wenden and follow the signs.
At milepost#29, take Wayside Road to Wayside.
Turn left on Wickenburg Road and it's a couple
miles to Alamo Wildlife Area.

From Hwy.93
Go west on Wickenburg Road.
Just guessing it is about 30 miles of dirt roads from this direction. 4x4 is recommended.

See: MAP

These are desert roads and you cross many washes that are prone to flash flooding. If the weather forecast is for rain, either avoid this area or bring plenty of supplies, because you might be there a couple days.

PALMERITA ROAD
At the end of Palmerita Road stay left. The last mile down to the river is steep and rough.

THREE RIVERS ROAD
About a mile east of Wayside
Turn on Palmerita Road to Three Rivers Road.
At the end of Three Rivers Road are some camps. Most firerings have been removed, so you might have to make a sandwich or salad.

The first couple miles is paved surface.

ALAMO ROAD
Alamo Road starts in Yucca Arizona and traverses 59 miles of desert to the northern shore of Alamo Lake. It is hot and dry in the summer. Alamo Road ends at the boat ramp and you could camp here, but best to take a spur road and find a spot. The road is subject to flash floods and possible loose sand. It is a scenic road. There are Organ Pipe Cactus and
Joshua Trees with rugged mountains in the backgrounds.

We were out here in the middle of the hottest part of summer and found three teenage kids wondering around the desert with no water. They were happy to see us...
