We got a 2 bedroom (king and two twins) cabin w/fireplace in family room, kitchen, linens, towels, kitchen soap, paper towels, trashbags, etc...even a fly swatter! I like that I didn't have to bring anything except food. The cabin is not "fancy big city luxury" but it is nice and extremely clean and comfortable...and from a fish camp perspective, I... More

The front desk, office, personnel, and camp store offerings are all exceptional here. It was very clear how intune the front desk and reservation personnel are when I stepped into our cabin......every comment/ request I had asked or made during the reservation process three months earlier had been taken care of! All the cabins are located on the river and... More

Just back from Gaston's what a great time this place is top notch they have everything you need the cottages are perfect. We would like to thank Bob at the dock for getting us on the water and getting my hat when it blew out of the boat and into the river.

Gastons is always where I stay when visiting the White River area. The cabins are a little old, but always nice and clean. Cool to sit out on the deck and watch the water roll by and trout feeding in the edits and slack water. The restaurant is OK more of an experience than food quality.

Four of us had lunch here July 3rd. It's a large restaurant, plenty of table but it was only about 25% full at noon that day. I don't suppose there are many places in Arkansas that you can pay $12 for a club sandwich but this is one of them. It took 40 minutes to receive our order, terrible considering... More

My brother, his girlfriend and I had lunch there. It was during the week and there was hardly anybody there besides us. We sat by the glass wall that faces the White river and it was beautiful. The food was excellent and they have a wonderful gift shop.

We visited here for a family reunion after having had the last one almost 25 years ago. Although a few things have been added since then, it was absolutely amazing to be able to pull back up in the drive and see that the layout, gift shop, cottages, restaurant and boat dock were exactly the same as they were over...

Be sure they level with you about the room u r getting. I got a small room facing the street. For food ... Unless u enjoy a over-rated restaurant and overpriced food don't eat at Gaston's. Try Connie's for breakfast or lunch and club 178 for lunch or diner in Bull Sholes about 10 minutes away.

Took a quick trip to see NW Ark and needed a place to stay overnight. I like to fish for trout but wasnt planning to fish on this trip. Lots of highlights for a 1 night stay without fishing. Wonderful meal of trout and perhaps as enjoyable a dining experience as I have had recently. The Peacocks strutting around and... More

This resort advertises” It costs no more to go first class”, and it is first class. Just keep in mind that first class here doesn’t mean luxurious. If you’re a die hard urbanite, it’s probably not for you. But, if you’re into fishing and/or the outdoors and don’t need big city amenities, the resort and the area in general is... More
