Wayside Oasis Near Alamo Lake State Park

Remote would be an under statement!  Our weather yesterday was all over the charts—wind, rain, sleet, snow and dang chilly!  Not ATV riding weather so we all piled into vehicles and headed toward Wenden, AZ where the road leads to an Arizona state park—Alamo Lake.  It’s a beautiful, lonely, remote spot with a lake—a definite rarity in Arizona. 

And it has the Wayside Oasis—a bar/grill/RV park run with a 75,000 watt generator.  The RV park wasn’t full but there were plenty of rigs occupying spaces—and as I said above, remote is an under statement!  There is a tiny grocery store/hardware store in the community of Wenden but that is about 35 miles away.  The nearest larger store would probably be in Wickenburg—adding another 50 miles to your trip—but you could fly!—the Wayside Oasis has a dirt landing strip and we were told it is quite busy on weekends with people flying in and landing for breakfast and lunch!!

There was 14 of us--

After lunch we drove around looking at boondocking spots anticipating a future ATV riding outing.

Another room painted—the small master bathroom—it’s almost too small to turn around in much less paint!  My hair has a new color after sticking my head to a freshly painted wall!

Cold but sunny today—the temps will warm up quickly as the week goes on.


  1. We've been to Wayside. It is definitely out there somewhere.
