from the tension of everyday life, this is
All "camp trip groups" camp completely
separate from other camp trip groups; ie,
one trip is NOT combined with another trip
into the same campground. They also
have separate cooks.
The example pricing directly below this
paragraph is for a two day spin fishing camp
trip on the White River. See Rates Page
for fly fishing rates.
For $820 per person (4 or more in party)

A full time cook camps with

gear loaded on a commissary
boat separate from your fishing
Everything for camping -
tents, cots, sleeping bags, linens,
campfire and a lot more is all
All you need to bring is a bag with
clothes and a toothbrush.
Four full meals - lunch and
supper the first day - breakfast and
lunch the second day. These are
not snacks; they are full meals

are cooked along the river or in camp.
Two full days of some of
the best trout fishing in America.
Catching is guaranteed!
a bargain? It is.
you camp on the White River
owns Smith Island; a 15 acre island in the
middle of the White River in Arkansas. Smith
Island is located about fourteen miles
downstream from our dock in Cotter,
Arkansas. The island is located at the
confluence of the White River and Buffalo
The island was completely flooded a few
years ago and ended up covered with many feet
of fine sand. Sand is NOT a good camping
surface even though it looks great. It
ends up in everything including sleeping bags
and even food. We have therefore been
camping at the gravel bar at the confluence of
the White River and Crooked Creek. This
is an absolutely perfect camp area.
The tents and dining
tarps and other camp essentials are set up
by the guides and cooks.
We can do camp
trips any month of the year. We have
heaters or wood stoves for the tents that
will keep you warm on New Years Day!
There is nothing
else on the island except deer and turkeys
and other assorted critters.
Your privacy and
solitude are guaranteed! The campsite is for
your fishing group only.
River camp trips we camp on the riverbank
gravel bars. The cook boat or boats go
ahead just as on our White River trips
Our most requested
Buffalo River trip is from the Rush
Landing access point to the White River;
about 24 miles of Bass fishing.
However, we can put-in as far upriver as
This scene is on a Buffalo River gravel bar
where this group is spending the night after
putting-in at Carver. They are camping
for two nights on the Buffalo and we will
take them out at the Highway 65 access
point. A really good Buffalo
Map with river mileages is here.
