Damage from the 2018 Donnell Fire

Dardanelle Store

Current Store - 2021

Sadly, the 2018 Donnell Fire destroyed or damaged many parts of the historic Dardanelle Resort. However, the campground and RV park will be up and running for the 2021 season with water, electric, and sewer. The cabins were lost in the fire. The motel survived, but will be used this season for business and staff housing.

Dardanelle Resort has a temporary store and bar open for the 2021 season. Plans are being made to rebuild in the near future.
