Our History

Gaston's White River Resort began 59 years ago when Al Gaston, Jim Gaston's father, purchased 20 acres of White River frontage with six small cottages and six boats...the year was 1958. Present day, Jim’s grandson - Clint Gaston - will carry on the family legacy for many years to come. The resort now covers over 400 acres, and has 79 cottages ranging in size from two double beds to ten private bedrooms. The airstrip has grown from 1,800 feet to 3,200 feet. The six boats are now over 70, and with a state of the art dock to hold them all. The years have brought an award winning restaurant, private club, gift shop, tennis court, playground, game room, duck pond, three nature trails, swimming pool, conference lodge, and fly fishing school.

Very profound post...for life, in general.

Watching planes come and go never gets old. We are ready for the sun to come back out so we can get back to flying! #gastonswhiteriverresort #gastons #aviation #backcountryflying ... See MoreSee Less

Wonderful place!

I wish it was possible to know when the seasonal fly-ins happen at Gastons. We see YouTube videos, but no one seems to know the date(s) of the next event. Best kept secret, even for/from Missouri or Arkansas local pilots, it seems...

One of the best thing about where we live. The plans start their descent right in front of our deck!

Fall fishing at it’s finest! The White River is full of healthy rainbows waiting to be hooked! #gastonswhiteriverresort #gastons #fallishere #catchandrelease #fatrainbows ... See MoreSee Less

Love me some gastons

Can’t wait to be back.

Beautiful place.

This place is calling me....again!

Are the trees starting to change? We will be there at the end of October for a couple weeks.

We were just there - other worldly.

We will be back the end of October. Gastons is beautiful when the leaves change.

Had dinner there last night. Out of this world good food.

I have actually flown a plane there. Cool spot!

See you this week!

I miss this place I call Home !!

A little rain doesn’t bother the trout. Landon caught and released this nice brown while fishing with one of our guides. Always brings the rain gear just to be on the safe side! #gastonswhiteriverresort #gastons #catchamdrelease #browntrout ... See MoreSee Less

Frequently asked questions

It seems redundant, but fishing is always good here. The White River stays the same temperature year-round and therefore the trout are always active. You should always be able to catch your limit. Also note that fly fishing is not the only way to fish here; over 85% of everyone that fishes here is spin fishing. You can produce excellent results fishing either way; the main thing is to have fun.
