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

Beautiful trophy brown trout caught on the White River with guide Steve Hooked Lopez out of Gaston's White River Resort Loved everything about Gaston's! I have heard about it from my husband Don for twenty-six years. He used to go there and had not been back for thirty-five years and it was great to see him loving every minute! It... More

After years of hearing about Gaston's from my father who made many trips to Gaston's to film for his fishing program years ago, my family decided to check it out. It was everything he said it was, so much so we have decided to make it our new family tradition. The fishing on the White river is exceptional. They have... More

The restaurant food was great and service was excellent. We had a full day fishing trip booked and our guide (JC) did everything he could to find us the... More

We are definitely more of a "city family", but we wanted to get away this past Memorial Day weekend for a few days. We have only been to one other resort around this area and wanted to try Gastons this year since we had heard fabulous reviews from friends about the place. Made an early reservation and it was a...
