Area Attractions
Many people come to the White River to fish, however, there are other things to enjoy in the area. Within a short drive of Nelson's White River Retreat is the Norfork Dam view overlook, Norfork National Trout Hatchery, the historic Wolf House built in 1829, antique, art and craft shops, horseback riding, and a trail leading to the top of the bluff towering over the river.

For a historic trip into the past, visit The Ozark Folk Center in Mountain View, AR,  with its Ozark Pioneer festivals, music, arts, and crafts. Tour Blanchard Springs Caverns, one of America's more spectacular cave systems. Blanchard is a scenic 1 hour drive away near Mountain View, Arkansas, where you'll also find some excellent art shopping, dining, and live entertainment.

For more live musical entertainment we are 1-1/2 hour drive from Branson, MO music shows, and Silver Dollar City. In Springfield, MO, you can visit Bass Pro Shop, and Wonders Of Wildlife. Historical towns to visit are Eureka Springs, Mountain View, and Hardy AR.

The White river is about 200 feet from the house. There is excellent bank or wade fishing access in normal water levels right out the back door. For your convenience, we have installed a fish cleaning station with running water and electricity for electric knives behind the house. Wader hangers are located on the barn.

If you would like to venture to other areas of the river, it is about a 1/2-mile drive to two facilities offering boat/motor rentals, bait, tackle, river taxi service, and fishing guide services. Their guides know the river well and can give you a full or half day of fun filled fishing for rainbow, cutthroat, brown trout, and brookies. If you wish to bring your own boat, a hard-surface public boat launch is a mile and a half away. Nelson's is 1/4 of a mile downstream from the mouth of the Buffalo River where spring smallmouth bass fishing is excellent.

If you would like to try your hand at lake fishing for stripers, largemouth, small mouth, Kentucky bass, walleye, crappie, and a variety of catfish we are within 40 minutes of Bull Shoals Lake or Norfork Lake. Boats rentals from bass to pontoon boats can be acquired from lake marinas on either lake as well as fishing guides.
