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.

The temperatures have been hot and so has the sulphur bite! Jarrod Ruggles and Mike Howell have been keeping their customer’s lines tight!

If you’re looking for places to beat the heat, we would suggest the White River. The cold water temps from the water can help keep you cool.

We love Gaston's and all it has to offer. Staying there in October!👍

We have Tiger Trout here in WV . They are a cross between a brown and a Brookie. They are the most aggressive trout I have seen , some in the 8-12 lb range.

We are breaking out the shovels, rakes, picks, and gloves with The Trail Team of North Central Arkansas and our friends at the White River State Park to make some improvements and clean up the Oak Ridge Trail.

This is tough work and it will be hot, but if you are able and want to help out, we'd love to feed you and get you with one of our teams! Please RSVP so we can get a head count for lunch and refreshments!

Even if you live 11 hours away, each visit you will make memories that last generations. I called today and booked for my son and I second trip this year. Picture of me in a stroller September 1981. You probably should keep my credit card of file by now.

Their friend trout is my absolute favorite!! 👏😋

"If there is one thing I know, it is that life goes on. People change, and love transforms, and our hearts break and grow within us. The things we once wanted fade into new hope, we lose those we thought we would never lose, and we walk away from those we thought we would never walk away from. If there is one thing I know, it is that even through all of its confusion, even through the messiness of our existence, life continues. I lost everything i ever cared for or love, but i am grateful to dr oguna the great and powerful spell caster that brought back my happiness and lot more, i am now a living testifier, I never believe in spell cause i have came along fake spell casters online that scammed me, but that didn't make me quite, but the day i ment this man online, there was something different about him, that why i decided to give a try, look were my try have gotten me into, all the negative effective around me and my relationship had been restored peacefully. if you know you are in pain! don't be afraid to give a try, Dr oguna one's told me there is no harm in trying. contact Dr oguna the great and powerful spell caster vai website below:https://www.facebook.com/priestesansolutiontemple/

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.
