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.

Thanks so much for posting! Bryce was so excited! We had a large family so went out with both Ron & Rick and had the best time!

Is everything back to normal from the storm damage? Sure hated to hear you were hit because you guys do such a wonderful job of keeping it beautiful there. This is without a doubt our favorite place to fly into and spend a day or so kicking back.

He beat my 24’ 1/4 there this May- Congrats? Wowee. Ron Chaney the actor?!

Hope that wasn't bread. Bread is bad for ducks and geese

Heaven on Earth!

We hope everyone is recovering and that you are doing well. We are hoping to have power back on in the next 24 hours. While we have suffered extensive damage, we expect to be fully operational within 3 to 5 business days. Our restaurant is currently closed for repairs. Our phones are down so we are doing our best to field and return all calls with one cell phone. We appreciate your continued patience. Sometimes the best thing you can do in situations like this is remember to support local. There are tons of local businesses just like ours who have been impacted, and who will lose revenue during the busiest season of the year. Support them, and when we get operational come have some river chips and catch a trout with a guide. While everything can be repaired or replaced, some families lost loved ones and heirlooms that can never be replaced. Our hearts are with them and with our community. We want to thank the linemen who are working tirelessly and risking life and limbs to get North Central Arkansas operational again. Stay safe, like, and follow our page for updates, and we’ll be rocking again in just a few days. Above everything else, I want to personally thank each and every staff member. Our staff have stepped up to do things far beyond the normal course of business. It’s all hands on deck right now and our staff has been nothing short of amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Regards,
Clint, Nicole, Trey, Ace, and Cruz

How lucky we are to be surrounded by a crew like this. 💕 always appreciative of them but makes my heart burst in times like this for sure!

Sorry for your back luck! Did other parts of the river get damage as well?

We were there that night. Scary to say for sure. Have several more trips scheduled back to there this year. Can’t wait to get back. God bless and good luck with the cleanup.

Frequently Asked Questions


The 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.
