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.

Quick stop for lunch before heading to Oshkosh! It’s always a treat to see vintage aircraft.

💯 Could spend all day watching them take off and land!

Hayden Trozzi Here you go. Good place to land. ☺️

One of the many reasons we love staying at Gaston's White River Resort.

Printed a few brochures for those folks back in tha day .

I agree, wish we knew ahead of time so we could book a stay.

Todd Strange

I love it there! Happy place😘

sure wish there was some way to know when "fly-in" events were coming ... catching a 3lb trout is the only thing that exceeds watching the planes landing & launching ...

I was there when someone stole a plane by flying off! It was crazy!

19” Tiger Trout while fishing with our guide, Matt Kelly! This is the biggest we’ve seen yet.

What’s the biggest tiger trout you’ve caught?

I pulled two Tiger trout out with fly fishing this winter. Both were from the end of the dock in front of Gaston’s. Neither were this big but was my first time to ever catch that type of trout.

Nice one ... caught this nice brown right off the bank outside my lodging there at Gaston 's 2 years ago ... July 4th weekend

I caught a couple the last time I was there. Beautiful fish

Multiple over 20’ around the state park. They’re growing quick!

Kristie Reine Ring caught one 2 weeks ago.

Wow!

I hope to catch one when I fish with Matt in July

I caught this one in March.

Baby Tiger Trout😁

William Thomas Fuller and Paul Munson...

Nice!

Nice Catch!!!

Just another Tuesday night at Gaston’s!

It’s always a pleasure visiting with those that put their life on the line to keep us safe. We are thankful for the sacrifices they have made to serve our great country.

If you ever get the opportunity to witness the Boeing Ch-47 Chinook in person, it’ll leave a lasting impression.

I was outside; I love to hear them fly over.

Ok, Steffi Hope and I need the whole story on this.. See y’all in October

Just one of the reasons I miss Gastons!

COOL!

I would take off and land in that any day at Gaston’s, we’ve watched some quite tricky landings with some props coming in☺️. Such a beautiful place to visit and fish.

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.
