Dardanelle Campground is located along the Stanislaus River in the Stanislaus National Forest, across the road from the Dardanelle Resort. Many who choose this campground like the convenience of being able to walk across the road to get a meal at the restaurant or pick up a bag of ice. Enjoyable fishing is close at hand in the river. Just a few miles upstream from Dardanelle Campground is Kennedy Meadows where lunker rainbow trout are pulled from the water regularly.
Dardanelle Campground is similar to the others in the area, first come, first served. Piped water is provided here. Some double sites are available.
