Cute, clean cabins right on the Norfork River. The boats for rent were in good running condition, and were even equipped with the nets that you will definitely need to get the fish you will be catching! This was the best trout fishing I've ever experienced! We caught at least 3 of each kind of trout in this river; rainbow, brook, cutthroat, and brown trout, including the 18" brown we caught on our last day that came home with us for dinner.

  • Liked — They used local red cedar for the woodworking trim, and the cabin smelled great.
  • Disliked — no cell phone coverage
  • Stayed June 2008, traveled as a couple

Gene's is one of the best places to stay for the great trout fishing in Arkansas. The cottages look like small manufactured houses with large decks overlooking the river. We had a one bedroom cottage and it was fine for the two of us. Queen size comfy bed. I would not add more people as the kitchen and bathroom spaces are small. The place was clean, cool and convenient to the trout docks. My only negative is if the dam is not generating, you are confined to a very small part of the river for fishing. HOWEVER, we did catch a lot of fish in that short area. Also recommend a little restaurant across the dam, up the road on the right. Think the name was Whispering Woods. At least something close to that. Great food, great prices and great service! Try the walleye.

  • Liked — Location to trout dock
  • Disliked — Parking

Having stayed at a few resorts I would undoubtedly rate this as the best I have stayed at. The accomodation is clean and well kept. The location is great for fishing and the staff friendly. All in all a great location for fishing on the northfolk river
