The station is perched above Lake Mead with a commanding view of the Fort. It is comprised of three tents, a campfire, and a radio tower. There are a few beds in the middle tent. Three rangers are stationed here, including Ranger Rebecca Lineholm.
- The lakelurks living along the shore of nearby Lake Mead can attack the rangers stationed here.
- Like most NCR held positions, this one can feature NCR Veteran Rangers starting at level 16, as long as the player character has reached one of the main faction's endgame quests.
Ranger Station Alpha appears in Fallout: New Vegas.
Behind the scenes
The ranger stations in the Mojave are named in order of the real world NATO phonetic alphabet. Ranger Station Alpha is unique by diverging in spelling, from the NATO alphabet's "Alfa" to the more normative "Alpha."
- Fallout: New Vegas Official Game Guide Collector's Edition p.370, Ranger Station Alpha: "Another NCR Ranger Station with commanding views of The Fort [3.28] and Lake Mead, these troops keep their eyes open for movement along "The Narrows." Ranger Lineholm (who tells you the story of the bomber that crashed into the lake, how great Rangers are, and the role the station plays) commands this place, and Comm Officer Castillo (who you can ask similar questions to) are stationed here."
