The dock is on the white river and a beautiful place. It was so refreshing to spend a day on the river catching trout. The people were so nice and helpful at the dock. I would go back there again. In fact, I will go back there again. The nice calendar with pictures of our group was such a nice...

We hired two boats and two guides. Floated from Cotter to the White Buffalo takeout just North of the confluence with the Buffalo River. Both guides knew the river and where to find 'em.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Overnight Camping and Fishing Trips on our private 15 Acre island in the White River at the confluence of the Buffalo River. Included in our rates..........Experienced trout guide for two full days (or however long you want). The guides camp with you in separate wall tents. A full time cook camps with you also. Everything for camping - wall tents, cots, sleeping bags, linens, campfire and a lot more is all provided by us and set-up and taken-down by the guides and cooks. No work for you to do except explore the island and continue fishing at camp if you want to. Some of the best trout fishing in America. Catching is guaranteed! The cook(s) go ahead of the fishing guides and prepare FULL meals for you. They also do the dishes! The first day noon lunch on the way to the island is a full fried chicken dinner with mashed potatoes and gravy. Then a steak supper at the island. In the morning a full big breakfast with eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes, pancakes etc. The second day lunch is usually ribs or pork chops. ... more   less
