“On the Bayou's of Dardanelle!”

Surrounded by the natural beauty for which the Arkansas River Valley is known, Lake Dardanelle is a sprawling 34,300-acre reservoir on the Arkansas River. These two water resources combined here have put this area into the national spotlight as a major bass fishing tournament site. Lake Dardanelle State Park offers two areas on the lake: one park site is at Russellville, and the other is located at nearby Dardanelle. Both the Russellville (main park) and Dardanelle locations offer camping (74 sites: Russellville--16 Class AAA, 13 Class AA, and 27 Class B; Dardanelle Area--18 Class B), launch ramps, standard pavilions, picnic sites, restrooms, and bathhouses with hot showers.The Russellville site also features a striking 10,527-square-foot visitor center on the lakeshore overlooking Lake Dardanelle. Engaging interpretive exhibits and state-of-the-art touch screen kiosks share information on the park, the area’s water resources and its history. A fascinating aquatic exhibit in the center features four aquariums that hold fish found in the lake, the Arkansas River, and its tributaries; Piney Creek, and the Illinois Bayou. Another unique facility in the (Russellville) main area is the park's 1,861-square-foot, fishing tournament weigh-in pavilion, a world class facility and the first of its kind in the nation that serves as a staging area for tournaments. Near the weigh-in pavilion is a covered, barrier-free fishing pier, a popular facility for bank fishing enthusiasts, sightseers and photographers with its sweeping view of lake and Mount Nebo to the south.The main park also includes a trail. Rental kayaks are available here. And, it's here that park visitors can enjoy nature programs on a wide variety of topics by park interpreters. NOTE: You do not have to be an overnight camping guest to enjoy the park's interpretive programs. Local residents, day visitors, and nearby Mount Nebo State Park visitors are all welcome..

Lovely lakefront campground not far from I-40. I stayed her one night on a cross-country trip. Out of state senior discount $19 for a full hookup 30 amp site. They have non-electric and 50 amp too. Plies Showers!

This was a beautiful campground. Well
kept grounds. We didn’t use the facilities, so can’t comment on that. We were just stopping for the night, but would have enjoyed staying longer if we had time.

There are a lot of different things that you can enjoy here. A lot of amazing scenery and amazing people. The lodge is simple but it's so beautiful. There are also a lot of educational activities and exhibits here.
