Dardanelle Resort Sept 7th - 9th

Dardenelle Resort Rally
(209) 965-4275
dardanelle108@aol.com

This is a very "relaxed" rally. Set for Sept 7th - 9th, or for however long you want to stay.

Open full hook up rv sites : 3, 8, 11, 13, 15, 16, 17, 18, 20 & 23
Open W/E only rv sites: 23, 29

There is also an open dry camp meadow available if needed.

What I know of site 23, is that it is a bit of a job to get the sewer hook up set. We have been in 15 also, and that site works best if you pull into it from around the back, instead of backing in. We always carry wood to level the trailer. It is privately run, but very much set up like a state park. No concrete, no grass. All sites have fire pits.

This is bear country. They pick up garbage at a set time in the evening, used to be by 6:30 (but that may have changed) If anyone wants to do a pot-luck I suggest that happens early, around 4:00, to allow clean up time. You do not want to leave food out, the bears will come and will stick around if you feed them.

They have a rustic restaurant, full bar and grocery. Also up the road a bit it Kennedy Meadows. The restaurant there is a bit bigger, as is the store. From there is a nice hike up to the meadow which really is a beautiful place to see. They also do horseback rides out of Kennedy, not sure on the cost.

It's a beautiful place. Lots of big trees and sometimes afternoon t-storms. Fishing, hiking, drinking all in one place

I'm interested....
What elevation is Dardanelle at? I'm thinking about weather. Still hot and I'm a wuss.
Just set up our own reservation with the park?

Hi Cara,

Yes, Dardenelle is up quite high. It is usually 15 degrees cooler than the valley, pretty nice. Usually has a 1-2 hour hot time in the afternoon and that is about it.

Yes please everyone is responsible for their own set up. Not as many open sites as they had last year, probably because Labor Day is a bit earlier this year.

Hello again,
Just called Dardanelle. We'll be in site #18.

Is there going to be a potuck?
How about karaoke? just kidding...kinda...but not really.

This will be a treat. We were looking at Dardanelle to get away from the heat since it's still pretty hot in the valley in Sept. Thanks, ZugBug for giving us a reason to get up there.
See you all soon!

Argh! I got slammed with work and just called today for my reservation and the resort is sort of booked...he had a big group change plans apparently and he doesn't know right now how many or if he will have any spaces available for our dates ... it sounds like if you booked you're okay but no room for new bookings right now.
