Alamo Lake State Park has two seasons: Hot and cold.
From June until September the temps can go from 100° to 118° in the day with lows in the upper 90s. It's usually over 100°. This is the time to bring sun block and shade. Some years are pleasant and we do not see the 100° mark until June; and other years we've seen it hit 100-plus in May. Although this is also monsoon season in Arizona we do not see much rain at the park. Humidity yes, rain no.
