White River

Exploring Arkansas In A Weekend

Sometimes life gets busy, and we can not afford to take off a whole week. However, what about the weekend? Clear a weekend and travel to Lakeview Arkansas. Enjoy incredible fishing on the White River, explore the Ozarks, and take a moment to relax.

Travel on a Friday and arrive right in time for check-in at Gaston’s White River Resort. Take a moment to relax and unpack and then enjoy a meal at our world-class restaurant. Then get a great night sleep in your cabin, so you are prepared for the weekend’s events!


At Gaston’s White River Resort, we offer full and half day guided fishing tours so you can fit in the best fishing you have ever experienced into your weekend getaway. The White River Runs approximately 720 miles throughout its journey through the Ozark Mountains and is home to the best trout fishing. Depending on what day you leave we recommend a full day trip. You will get lessons and tips on how to fish for trout and then have enough time to find your perfect catch. If you are up for more adventure sign up for fly fishing lessons. You will be taught in a classroom setting as well as hands-on experience to make sure that you are prepared and can use these skills in the future.


After you have taken a day or half day to fish the famous White River, it is time to see what is around White Riverthe river. See for yourself why people boast about the surrounding mountains, hills, and bluffs.
