I have recognized Gaston’s White River Resort on Trip Advisor before but I don't think I did
it the justice it deserves. We just returned from another pleasant trip to Arkansas where we stayed at Gaston’s once again, we always do when we can get reservations so call ahead, it's a busy place. Watch out for the deer on the roads in the area, there are many many, horny little devils they must be.
Take a look at the aerial picture on Gaston’s web site and you will see the row of cabins right on the river, there are many; they are big enough if you want space and some small if you don't. We always try to get a cabin with a deck but you can sit in your chairs between your cabin and the river if not. All cabins are on the river as you will see on the web site. Besides the runway for pilots, duh, they have a pool, river boat rental and fishing guide service. If you are like us, we don't fish but we get a boat when the generators are running and just float.
The kids will enjoy the nature center with a hiking trail and the restaurant besides serving great food is a museum in itself with the different antiques hanging on the wall and from the ceiling. We always try to get a table overlooking the river which adds to your good time and they have a bar in the restaurant. You will find that the staff is very friendly and they will take care of you.
I have flown in numerous times, the runway is a nice grass strip but don't fly out loaded as there are high lines at one end of the runway and bluffs at the other end. I'm not trying to scare you but it's a pilot’s airport, you can figure it all out in your pre flight before you fly down or when you leave.
And NO, I never worked there and I am not related, it is just our kind of a place to relax and enjoy. You will too!
