24 Comments on “Lake Dardanelle State Park”

  1. Can you tell me if your camp sites have full hook ups and your rates

    • Hi Dalmus,
      Lake Dardanelle State Park (Dardanelle area) has 30 full hookup sites (16 with 50 amp and 14 with 30 amp). The other 40 sites have water/electric hoops (25 with 50 amp and 18 with 30 amp).

  2. Site 44 was an awesome site, wide enough for two cars at the front of the Trailer. Long enough for a 38ft and can park next to it.

  3. We reserved site 5 for next week. Our RV is 30 amp. I told them when I made the reservation. Is this site 50/30 amp?

    • Hi Robin,

      Your site (A5) has full hookups / 50 amp. CampsitePhotos.com is not associated with the Lake Dardanelle State Park so I can say for sure if 30 amp will work at your site. You might try calling the park directly at: (479)967-5516

      • Hello, are campsites available considering virus restrictions?

      • Hi Charles,
        Camping for self-contained trailers and RVS is open at Lake Dardanelle State Park. Tent camping isn’t allowed yet and the Park isn’t sure when tent camping will reopen because that’s up to the state’s health department.

  4. Jennifer says:

    Where can we find out how the campsites are numbered? The brochure only lists areas, not the actual numbers of the sites.

  5. How do I reserve 2 spots at the spots at dardanelle sites.

    • HI Rita,

      You can click on the ‘Make A Reservation’ button to check availability, pricing and make a reservation at Lake Dardanelle State Park campground.

  6. christie mcglothlin says:

    I am needing to stay at the Dardanelle side of the park. can I make reservations or are they first come first serve. Not fair when a guy goes over there during an important event week and puts a chair or tent in all the places to “reserve” them and pays for them all so they are available when all his friends finally show up.

    • Hi Christie,
      All campsites at Lake Dardanelle State Park are reservable. You can click on the ‘Make A Reservation’ button to check availability, pricing and make a reservation.

      • christie mcglothlin says:

        show me where you can reserve the spots at the DARDANELLE

      • christie mcglothlin says:

        the web page only allows you to reserve the Russellville sites at lake Dardanelle state park, nowhere to reserve the sites on the Dardanelle side.

  7. Pamela Graves says:

    Is site A5 on Lake Dardanelle on the water?

    • Hi Pamela,
      Yes, campsite A5 at Lake Daranelle State Park is next to the lake/water. The water is about 100 feet from the campsite and nothing in between. You can get a glimpse of the water from the photo of campsite A5.

  8. We have site 48 reserved in September-are there any trees at that site that would work to tie a hammock to?

  9. When making reservations online the terms and conditions, that I must read and agree to, state your PET POLICY which requires a $40 nonrefundable fee per dog per stay. Is this an error? For a campsite? Really?

    • Hi Tom,
      We didn’t know about that pet fee policy at Lake Dardanelle State Park. You may want to call the campground/park to confirm at 479-967-5516, or contact Arkansas State Park Reservations at 888-287-2757 / parks.info@arkansas.gov. That pet fee sure seems excessive.

      • As suggested I called the Arkansas State Park reservations and woman was already aware of my concern. She acknowledged that the website says there is a $40 fee per dog but is in error and is being corrected. The $40 fee per dog is supposed to just apply to cottages and lodge rooms, not campsites. Yay !!

      • That’s great news! That sure didn’t seem right to me either. I bet they get quite a few calls on it.

    Russellville side: Clean, well-maintained campground on the lake. Some sites are a little close, but each site has everything you need. Great mountain bike trails on nearby Nebo.
