Gaston's White River Resort !
   I attended a Bellanca Super Viking fly-in in Branson MO. One morning a few of us made a breakfast run to a grass strip called Gaston's. Gaston's is in the Ozarks on the White River in an area known for it's trout fishing. The place is gorgeous! The country side is green, skys blue and the entire facility overlooks the White River.

All the cottages face the river and back up to the airfield. Right behind the check in desk there is a Marina where you can rent a boat with or without a fishing guide.

The restaurant overlooks the river and the boats fishing on it. The atmosphere is unique and I really enjoyed the food.

Hiking and fishing must be outstanding but we didn't have the time, we flew in for breakfast only. I'm still kicking myself for not spending a couple of nights.
