Where is Alamo Lake, Dan? Eventually, we would like to go camping with the Desert Eggs, especially for the astronomy nights.

Hi Chris,

I just spent 4 days at Lake Alamo last week.
I thought I could see all of the stars at night as I live in the Mts.. Maybe it is the AZ. air but I have never seen such a beautiful night sky.
Alamo is about one hundred miles from Blythe. Take the hiway 60 exit off of I 10 and go to Wenden Az. and turn left for another 30 miles and you are there.
The campgrounds are outstanding.
Go to http://www.arizona-leisure.com/arizona-parks.html and you can get all of the info you need on Alamo and any other lake or park in AZ.

John

Thanks, John. We are always looking for desert camping spots beginning at this time of year through spring. Sounds like a good place to go. My husband, Clete, is an amatuer astronomer, so it sounds right up our alley.

I forgot to tell you one thing about Alamo. It is not a very pretty lake.
Imagine a low spot in the middle of a desert filled with water and you have a mental picture of Alamo. Although I think it would be an astronomy buffs dream.
There are trees in the State campground which is very nice.
John

Chris:

As John said....Alamo Lake is 38 miles North of Wenden, AZ. There is nothing between Wenden and the Lake. If you need supplies, Wenden is the last chance for buying anything. They tell me there was a store at the lake but it was closed for some reason.

Getting away from the campground lights at night and looking up at the stars is breathtaking. One of our Desert Egg members is a hobby astronomer and brought his telescopes. He is the one with the Scamp 5th wheel "The Star Pad"

Regards,

Dan

True desert lakes aren't very picturesque, but the skies...breathtaking! We will definitely have to go there!

Alamo is one place I want to try out. Another State Park that is very nice is Roper Lake State Park. Roper Lake is just south of Safford, AZ. I'm interested in joining Desert Eggs, I'm glad to see the Desert Eggs exist. Does any one know of a Southern Arizona Eggs group?

Hi dsheets:

The Desert Eggs was organized by Pat and Arleen. Don't know their last names but you can reach them at chartmaker.tripod.com. I believe they live in the Tucson area.

Hi Dan,
Have you been to lake Martinez down by Yuma? If so can you tell me anything about it.
I'm looking for another place to warm up in January and do some bass fishing.
Alamo is about 9 hours from me, I guess Martinez will be about the same.
John

Hi John:

No I have not been to Martinez Lake. Sorry but I don't have any info on it. You will be going to the right area if you go around Yuma to keep from getting cold tho. I'm not a fisherman but I understand that Alamo Lake is good for Bass.

Dan
