Friday, April 4, 2014 - Lake Dardanelle State Park, Russellville, AR


It really cooled off last night after the storms and neither of us wanted to get out of bed much this morning but finally the coffee called us.  Unfortunately something went awry with the coffee making.  The filter somehow got folded over and it required making a second pot since we did not care to drink the grounds. 

Finally, we got our coffee, about 30 minutes later.  Sure missed my Keurig this morning. 

We got busy right after breakfast and got everything secured and slides in so we could move on to our next stop.  We left Beaver Lake at 10:15.  We had about 3.5-4 hour drive ahead of us.  We decided not to take Highway 7 on this leg of the trip.  Instead we went back to Rogers and then took 540 south to I-40 that lead into Russellville.

We stopped along the way on an off ramp to make a pit stop and have those sandwiches I made up.  They were really good. 

We arrived in Russellville about 2:30.  The park here is very, very nice.  I’ll get some pictures tomorrow of our site and some of the amenities.  The parking spots are very nice.  There are some great hiking trails up the road along the lake.  We thought we’d check those out tomorrow. 

Tonight we ordered pizza from Brick Oven Pizza.  It was highly recommended on Trip Advisor.  We had a medium pork sausage with extra cheese.  I thought it was a bit small but we were both full after eating 4 small pieces.  Dean did not care for the spice they had in it.  I’m not sure what it was but I LOVED it.  The crust was crispy and they put lots of extra cheese on it!  Good choice in my books.  We might have to visit DQ tonight though! 

Here’s a picture of the view out our back window.  It’s gorgeous!
