  • Love going here at night. Always has people on the bridge that are friendly. And it's such a pretty view. Love that the lights change depending on what holiday is coming up. Love that it has a path connected to another bridge.
  • If you're going for the views or the fishing, it is always a good time. Love walking the trails and being up top to enjoy the view day or night up and down the river. Dropping a line in at the base of the dam is always an option as well. Grounds are well maintained and patrolled. Never had a problem feeling safe day or night. You want a peaceful place to just get outside this is a great place to go.
  • Dog friendly can't beat that, lots of walking trails
  • DARDANELLE,S DAM I MUCH BIG
  • This is a pretty cool walkway that spans the dam, and it provides great views along the river.
