Dardanelle Resort destroyed by Donnell Fire

I know many locals and visitors will be sorry to know - the Dardanelle Resort on Hwy 108 was largely destroyed by the Donnell Fire last night. The campground, lodge, and restaurant were favorites of many people over the decades, and new owners had just taken over and made some improvements. I always liked that place and I'm so sorry to see it gone and hope it can recover.

This fire is the one that has caused Hwy 108 to close. Kennedy Meadows, a well-known campground and pack station, is still being defended.

That's very sad.

It was one of our favorites to stop by too.
