We stopped on our way back home from NW Ar to walk the trail. Nice country walk and was able to view 4 deer during our walk.
Beautiful state park and lake.

We have stayed in three Arkansas state parks so far and I cannot say enough good things about them. Lake Dardenelle state park is very large with the campground areas separate from the day use areas (beach, playground, amphitheater for bass tournaments, visitor center, marina). The campgrounds are at the end of the park, so it is less crowded and quieter in that area. There are more than one camp loops, but only one offers sights large enough for big rigs, full hook up & waterfront sights, and that is loop A. We reserved one of those sites on the water and wow, it is amazingly beautiful. It would be perfect if not for the sight of the nuclear plant across the water. Each waterfront sight is level, well groomed with large picnic area and stairway to another sitting area near the water. Non-waterfront sites appear very nice, shaded and spacious. If you want wifi, there are a couple of locations within the park you can access with a password, just ask for it. Verizon signal very good, of course the park is close to Russellville. Can't speak for the bathroom facilities. No laundry facility. Unlike many other states, Arkansas does not require a vehicle pass.

Large treed sites with picnic table and fire ring. Beautiful lakefront sites with bench. Great for big rigs. Full service sites. Bathrooms/showers are huge, private and no extra charge. Walking trails, dogs allowed- beware of ticks. Near nuclear reactor site...

This is a very nice state park with a beautiful paved entrance and welcome center with aquariums, exhibits, and gift center. There is a daily schedule of classes and activities for kids. We only stayed a couple of nights in the D loop. I think we probably picked the most unlevel spot in the entire park, but we were coming in late after dark and all the sites were marked reserved around us so we didn’t try to move. However, it was so unlevel, we couldn’t unhitch the tow truck and the shower wouldn’t drain. We were able to make dues with our second vehicle and the bath houses. Our visit also coincided with the recent flooding of the Arkansas River, so the lake and swimming area were closed. They did have an awesome playground, and rock barrier/pier that was pretty happening at night with lots of people walking and fishing. Overall a great park. Would definitely come back but try to get a different site.

Stayed here for a few days. Section A is great for bigger rigs, spaces are big and near level. Many spaces right on the lake. Full hookups and other sections with water and electric. Excellent ATT and Verizon service. Good shade but also cleared enough for SAT. Really nice visitor center, playgrounds, and beach area for swimming.

Very nice and clean camp ground. Lots of trees, grass, sandy beach, and a beautiful lake. Very quiet even when the park was full. The only negative that I have, there are a lot of fire ants and I was stung several times, so sitting outside was not possible. Would stay again

Very nice and clean campsite! We stayed here for 3 nights. Close to the mountains for hiking, we went to Mount Petit Jean and hiked to the falls, Mount Nebo we watched the sunrise and sunset, and Mount Magazine we hiked to the highest point and then watched the most amazing sunset at observation point. Lake Dardanelle has kayaks you can rent which was great because we had ours but a friend met us and was able to rent one and kayak with us.
