Lake Dardanelle is actually a reservoir located on the Arkansas River. All that water makes for some excellent fishing, which is why this is one of the major bass fishing tournament sites. There are two different park areas on the lake. In the Russellville area there is a fishing weigh-in pavilion, that is an incredible staging area for tournaments. The main park also features a trail, kayaks, and biking. _________ HOURS: * Interpretive programs available year-round Visitor Center: Open all year Jan. - Dec.
