Welcome To
White River Trout Lodge

Bill, Jo Ann and Brent Smith, owners of White River Trout Lodge

APRIL 2023: We added R.V. spots at $60/night, and also a new rental named "Red Shed" which you can rent for $110/night.


We are located in the heart of the Ozarks on a peaceful country road near Cotter Arkansas. Our property provides 475 feet of frontage on a river world famous for trout fishing. Our riverbank is easily accessible for fishing no matter what the water level. Via the river, we are approximately half-way between Bull Shoals Dam and the Cotter boat ramp. We are two miles down from White Hole, 3 miles up from Wildcat Shoals, and The Narrows can be seen from our riverbank. We are situated in a prime spot for fishing for huge brown as well as large rainbow and stockers.

If you just want a beautiful place to home base while you explore our area, we are located in the middle of many Ozark adventure spots. Bull Shoals and Norfork Lakes, Buffalo National River, and Crooked Creek are within 40 miles of us. It’s about an hour to Mountain View and 1 ½ hours to Branson.

Our flexible accommodations are nestled by the waters’ edge with a view of majestic bluffs and clear trout waters. We also have lots of comfortable deck space with outdoor dining options.
