Lake Dardanelle In Arkansas

Lake Dardanelle, Arkansas

Boating, camping and fishing.

Nestled in the beauty of the Arkansas River Valley, Lake Dardanelle is a boating and angling paradise. Launch your boat at one of the public boat launch ramps or rent a boat from various boat rental agencies at the lake. It is situated in the north, north-central part of the state, immediately west of Russelville. Camping, lodging, restaurants and shopping are all close at hand, as are marinas and boating-related services. The lake is loaded with numerous fish species and attracts fishing enthusiasts in search of bass, hybrid stripers, sauger, crappie, catfish, sunfish and white bass. At other times it can be a bit of a challenge to locate the fish in this 34,300-acre reservoir. Visitors can explore over 315 miles of shoreline for boating, fishing and sightseeing.
