Not a more beautiful spot on the river, and the fishing is the best in the world! The lodging is great, the food is outstanding, and the staff really know how to take care of you. I can't wait to get back, it really doesn't cost any more to go First Class!!!

If you are a fisherman Gaston's is the place you want to vacation. The trout fishing is superb. The cabin was comfortable, roomy and clean. There was a beautiful view of the river. The restaurant is unique and the food is very good. The staff is friendly and helpful. I would recommend Gaston's as a great place to relax and make some memories.

Amazing dinner with my wife and little girl at Gaston's Restaurant. The service was great and the view topped it all off. We look to make a return trip this fall and stay at the resort. Hope the stay is just as good as the food.

We were married at Gaston's, in their Gazebo, and it was incredible. EVERYONE went out of their way to ensure that it was memorable. It was short notice for the staff at Gaston's, (I did not know they have an event co-ordinator), and the help and suggestions made by Cheri Krug (the event co-ordinator) were invaluable. We caught fish in the morning for our evening meal, and our server, Daniel, ensured that everyone was happy, glasses filled,cake sliced, plates full, he is an asset to Gaston's! The chef did an outstanding job prepareing fish we caught that morning, and everything was wonderful. I had a great time at my wedding because they took the burden completly off me, I was allowed to sit and enjoy and just visit and laugh and talk.
If you ever get the opportunity to visit this resort, do so. Don't walk, run to the car and be prepared to have a great time. You will enjoy the fishing, the scenery, and the people. It is quite beautiful and they have trails to walk, a pool, and that great trout fishing thing going on.
There is something for everyone at Gaston's! We will definitly return, and we both recommend Gaston's to everyone.

Everyone who knows me has heard me speak of my love for Gastons Resort. It is a love affair that began when I was a eleven year old boy on vacation with my family. Now some 46 years and many visits later,later that love is still there and maybe greater than ever. There is no finer place on this earth to relax and/or enjoy nature at it's finest. It is a photographer's dream destination. And, if like me, your passion is catching large brown trout or acrobatic rainbows, there is no better place than the incomparable White River of Arkansas.

We have been returning to Gaston's at least yearly for the past 20 plus years. It is the most relaxing place anywhere. It is heaven sitting by the river, whether fishing, reading , nature watching, or just relaxing watching the river go by . The staff are always available to help with anything. I once had a flat tire that was repaired by Gaston's staff at the resort.The fishing guides are wonderful at teaching new techniques. It is wonderful to be able to bring the pets along on vacation. There are many areas to take a walk and see the beauty of nature. The resort is very well maintained.My children have loved going to Gaston's through the years. I hope to continue the tradition of returning to Gaston's for many years to come.

There's no place I'd rather make a memory then at Gaston's White River Resort. I've been making memories at Gaston's for more than 25 years and one of my favorite times is in March. That's when I spend almost a week each year at Gaston's. Wow, the fishing is fantastic year-round at Gaston's, but there's something special about a March day on the river. Love those pink cabins, too. And the airstrip. And the restaurant. And the . . . .You get the idea by now. I caught the biggest brown trout of my life (30 inches long) fishing out of Gaston's in March. Caught it. Made a photo. And released it to be caught again.
