Lake Dardanelle, AR

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. Launch your boat at one of the public boat launch ramps or rent a boat from various boat rental agencies at the lake.

Camping, lodging, restaurants and shopping are all close at hand, as are marinas and boating-related services.
