Our History

Gaston's White River Resort began 61 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.

In a world that has changed so much over the last month, it’s reassuring to see that our river has not. Here is Kemal’s 27” brown.

Nice one. WE MISS GASTONS.

I hope you’ll still be open when we come down in July

Wish I could live in one of those pink cabins for the rest of my life!!

Looking forward to July as well...

Nice

Me too

Awesome, nature just keeps going!

Curious. I’m guessing 8.5 pounds?

We’ve been practicing social distancing for 62 years now. While, we can’t offer dining in our restaurant, we do have take out and room service options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We have picnic tables scattered around our property so that you can still enjoy great food with beautiful scenery. Bring your dogs too. They’ll love walking our trails and bird sanctuary just as much as you will. If you’d like to fish, we offer guided fishing, boat rentals, and bank fishing. If you need any fishing equipment, we’ve got you covered. Use this time to enjoy the outdoors and see what all nature has to offer. Give us a call at (870)431-5202 for any questions and more information.

Check out this 25” brown Logan caught while fishing with our guide, Rick O’Neale!

Here at Gaston’s, things are as they have always been...Great fishing, beautiful scenery, and southern hospitality at it’s finest. Turn off the news, get outside and enjoy nature. Time spent outside is never wasted. If you are getting stir crazy at home, give us a call to set up a fishing trip.

When will you have updates on how to reschedule due to pandemic?

I'm ready to come back up there. Do you have toilet paper🤣🤣🤣

Being out on a river is a safe place to social distance. If I have to get away, I would always prefer a quiet cabin with a river view.

Yes

I assume restaurant and bar closed?

Great job Rick

Great job logan!

Time spent on the river is never wasted...Catching trout is a bonus.

Just a couple weeks left until spring break! We strongly encourage spending time outdoors as the memories made will be lifelong.

Current Dinner Specials

-Specials begin on Thursday – March 24th, 2020-

Due to the current Corona Virus Pandemic there are no dinner specials this week.

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.
