We are your destination for southern hospitality and white river fishing

Steve Willetts, owner of White Hole Resort

Welcome to the White Hole Resort!

My name is Steve, and my family and I can't wait to welcome you to our little slice of heaven by one of the best trout fishing rivers in the world, the White River in the Ozark Mountains of north-central Arkansas. We love walking out our back door and seeing the river in all its moods—blanketed in silvery fog, swirling in the wind, or sparkling in the sunshine—and we want to share that experience with you. There's nothing quite like being out on the river, seeing a fish jump in the water, noticing the end of your fishing pole twitch, and feeling a rush of excitement as you realize you've got a fish on your hook! So what are you waiting for? Our steady jon boats, well-supplied bait shop, professional fishing guides, comfortable cabins, and friendly staff are ready and waiting to help you and your companions experience a trout-fishing getaway like no other.

Why should you fish with us when there are so many other options? Because we have the location and services to make your fishing adventure one you will want to relive for years! Filled with lots of easy, fun Rainbow Trout, challenging trophy-sized Brown Trout, and elusive Cutthroat and Brook Trout, the White River offers a wonderful time for people of all ages and skill levels. Because we are located at the top of the river’s deep “White Hole,” you’ll always have access to good fishing spots. You can rent boats from us, or you can bring your personal boat and launch it from the White Hole Public Access next door to our resort. To take your fishing trip to the next level, let us provide you with some of the best guides on the river—just let us know and we will make the arrangements for you. And of course, bank fishing is always available on our property.

Take Me Fishing

We are a large family and it’s hard to find a place where we can all gather together. The White Hole Resort is the perfect place. We’ve enjoyed grilling, spending nights by the camp fire, and most of all the fishing is great!! The owners are wonderful people on site whenever needed. The lodgings are clean and they provided whatever is needed for cooking, fishing, boating, and most of all just to be able to enjoy yourself.

Over several years and after staying at several other resorts Steve and Lin are hands-down guaranteed one of the best on the river if not the best hosts and over all experience in lodging.

-Bill D.

White Hole Resort was a fantastic place to stay! Steve and Lin were very courteous and answered any and all questions that we had with ease. The cabins were roomy, cozy, and everything we were looking for to make our stay a breeze. The majestic view of the white river from our cabin was a daily added bonus. Will definitely return to this beautiful place!

My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary in Arkansas and Missouri. We started out spending two nights at White Hole Resort. Their location on the White River is just beautiful. We caught several trout off the bank the afternoon we arrived. We had booked a guided trip for the second day. ... [Our guide] Jonce has over 30 years on the White River and knows the river like the back of his hand. We caught over 40 trout and thoroughly enjoyed his company. We will be going back and we will be fishing with Jonce!


Had an absolutely great time!! Steve and Lin did everything possible to make us feel right at home. The accommodations are wonderful, clean, comfortable, and inviting. Looking forward to many more trips.
