The town of Alamo is located in southern Lincoln County, just 90 miles north of Las Vegas. This friendly community includes a café, grocery store, churches, Timbers Lodge, service stations, emergency services and a landing strip for small private airplanes. It is the social and business center of the rich Pahranagat Valley and home to the Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge.
With an abundant water source, the Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge has over 5,000 acres of open wetlands and lush green grasslands. An important stop on the Great Pacific Migratory Route, thousands of migratory birds and waterfowl fly through this area every year. Dozens of bird species can be found in this long valley, and it is one of over 500 managed areas in the National Wildlife Refuge system.
The country surrounding Alamo offers great fishing, many lakes, hot springs, and Native American artifacts. It is also one of the closest inhabited places to the government installation known as Area 51.
