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, Jimโ€™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.

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.
Once we reserve a cottage for you, we remove it from the market, refusing all other requests. If you cancel a reservation 15 days or more prior to your arrival date, we will refund you deposit minus a $75.00 cancellation fee. For parties of 20 persons or more, a 30 day notice is necessary. Cancellations of less than two weeks’ notice are subject to total loss of deposit.
No, we do not take reservations over the Internet at this time, due to the fact that it can all change in a moments notice, but you can make requests for availability online. If you would like to make reservations, we only take them over the phone. We are always happy to check on available dates for you. All you have to do is call (870) 431-5202.
Check in is normally 3:00 PM and check out is 11:00 AM. Most of the time, you can get into your cottage before 3:00 PM, but that is not guaranteed. As far as late arrivals, if you don’t make it here before our office closes, you can still get into your cottage. A reservation is not deemed a no show until the next morning when we open the office at 6:30 AM.
Yes we do, just be sure that they are flea-free and bring a leash and anything else you need to help take care of your pet. Keep in mind that other pets will be here also so your pet must be on a leash when outside of the cottage.
Each cottage has a wireless connection to our free Internet service. You simply choose the username designated for your room and type in the password supplied. Make sure to let the computer obtain IP and DNS settings automatically, and you are online.
We do have four cottages that have one king size bed along with one double bed. Those are the Standard cottages. All other cottages have full size beds, except the Deluxe cottages. They have one room with a king size bed and the other room has two twin beds.
