Lake Dardanelle, Arkansas

Another stop on my way east was at Lake Dardanelle, Arkansas. I stayed at a Corps of Engineers campground below the dam. The visitor center and state park are above the dam on the lake.
My campsite overlooking the river below the dam.

I did take the kayak out twice while here. The first time with Thistle.

Bald Eagles winter here.

White Pelicans stop here on their migration.

Thistle and I went for a hike on nearby Mt. Nebo.
