RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. – See our aquarium exhibit! We have 8,000 gallons of aquariums, filled with many of the fish species found in Lake Dardanelle. Join park staff, as they feed the fish live food. See for yourself, just what do those fish eat for lunch? The fun starts on Tuesday, Feb. 1 at 1:30 pm.

Also on Monday, Dardanelle State Park is proud to offer winter lake cruises for the best chance of seeing our national symbol; the American bald eagle. 

Many other spectacular birds will be in the area for viewing - including white pelicans, ducks, and snow geese. Please dress very warmly as temperatures and winds are much more severe on the lake.  There is no fee for the tour, but space is limited.  We will begin boarding 15 minutes before the tour, at the boat dock near the south boat ramp.  Spaces are available on a first come, first serve basis.
