Lake Dardanelle State Park Eagle Tours

Lake Dardanelle State Park is proud to offer free 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 American White Pelicans, ducks, and Snow Geese. Eagle tours will be offered November through February. In an effort to accommodate as many people as possible for our tours we will be taking reservations this year.  You will need to call the visitor center at 479-967-5516 for scheduled tour dates and times and to reserve your seat.  Please dress warmly as temperatures and winds are more severe on the lake. We will begin boarding 15 minutes before the tour, at the boat dock near the Tournament Weigh-In Facility.  Also, in case of inclement weather, call 1 hour before tour time for possible cancellations.

Lake Dardanelle State Park is one of the 52 state parks administered by the State Parks Division of the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism. The park offers two areas on 34,300-acre Lake Dardanelle. The Russellville (main park) and Dardanelle locations both offer camping, marinas, launch ramps, standard pavilions, picnic sites, restrooms, and bathhouses. Along with the visitor center and fishing tournament weigh-in pavilion, the Russellville area offers a barrier-free fishing pier and nature trail. Year-round interpretive programs are offered at the Russellville area.

To reach each park: 1) Russellville Area -- Take Exit #81 (Ark. 7) off I-40 at Russellville. Turn south, then immediately turn west on Ark. 326 and go four miles; 2) Dardanelle Area -- Go four miles west of Dardanelle on Ark. 22.
