We stayed a weekend at Gaston's / there were 3 adults and 3 teenagers. We had an incredible time. We used 3 guides (Steve, Rob and Roger) we could not of asked for better guides. They were awesome. They went out of their way to cook the shoreline lunch for us in the heat. It was an amazing time-we made... More

My family and I have stayed at Gaston's when we go to the Ranger Dealer Meeting each year. We enjoy the beauty and the fishing and the friendliness of the staff. Just so you know, if you are fortunate enough to catch a big bag of trout, they will cook it for you right there at the lodge restaurant. Keith,... More

I have recognized Gaston’s White River Resort on Trip Advisor before but I don't think I did it the justice it deserves. We just returned from another pleasant trip to Arkansas where we stayed at Gaston’s once again, we always do when we can get reservations so call ahead, it's a busy place.

Even as visitors from Florida that were not staying at the resort, the resort staff bent over backwards to help plan a surprise engagement for my niece and allowed us to use a gazebo by the river for the very special and magical event.

When my family stayed at Gastons Resort we fell in love. To have had it any other place would be unthinkable! The service is amazing. The rooms are cozy and made us feel at home. And the food there will put any big time 5 star restaraunt to shame. There are so many things you can do there, swimming, fishing,... More
