All have cooking and eating utensils, automatic drip coffee makers, microwave, stove top (most cabins have ovens), toasters, drinking glasses, and coffee cups. All CLDs are fully equipped with bed and bath linens. This includes sheets, blankets, bed spreads, pillows, bath towels, face towels, and wash cloths. All CLDs have color satellite television. All CLDs have a patio or wooden deck on the outside with a charcoal barbecue grill.

Fishing The North Fork River  

The North Fork River flows from the Norfork Dam 4.8 miles to the White River. The White 
River then travels down the state of Arkansas and flows into the Mississippi River. The North Fork River holds many state trout records to include a previously held 38.9 lb. German Brown Trout and a 5 lb. Brook Trout. Rainbow and Cutthroat Trout are also common. The cold temperatures of the North Fork River range from 47-54 degrees year round as this water comes from 90 feet below Lake Norfork. Swimming in the North Fork River is not encouraged. The cold water and swift water flows from the Norfork Dam turbines can be very dangerous. DO NOT SWIM THE NORTH FORK RIVER!! There is a swim area on Lake Norfork just 1/4 mile up from our resort (on the other side of the Norfork Dam).

FREE High Speed Wireless Internet Access

Gene's Resort is proud to offer you  FREE High Speed 25MG (as of 08-1-15) Wireless Internet Access. Bring your own wireless computer, laptop, or notebook and have free wireless access to the internet directly from the quite comfort of your cabin. 



Just a short note to let everyone know that Gene's Trout Fishing Resort has, on January 6th, 2017, acquired and purchased the ownership of the resort next to us on the North Fork River.

Gene's Resort has initiated a complete overhaul, remodeling, power washing/cleaning, staining and beautifying all existing cabins with additional parking lots. New furniture, televisions, many kitchen appliances and kitchenware were replaced and state of the art high speed internet was installed. Sidewalks were constructed to adjoin both resorts. A larger office has been constructed at the first entrance to Gene's Resort and the older office is now a rental Cabin #17.

We are very excited about all these new changes and addition to Gene's Resort. This acquisition enabled Gene's Resort an additional eleven cabins. We now have a total of 31 cabins. Pictures of the new acquisition have not yet been posted to our website. The prices of all cabins and bed descriptions, can be found on our website at:

Effective 2017, the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission revamped their fishing licensing program and procedures. Gene's Resort will continue to issue Fishing and Hunting Licenses but we do suggest and inform you that you can get on-line and receive your fishing licenses prior to your arrival. Thank-you for your help and understanding. The link to get your fishing licenses is: 

Please call and make your reservations soon as we expect a great year for 2018. We have had a lot of water this year and the lake levels are now at normal pool level. Both bait and fly fishing should be enjoyed by all. Join us and make this merger a success for years to come.
