What to know
For over 50 years Cotter Trout Dock has been conducting guided trout fishing float trips and camping float trips on Arkansas' White River and North Fork River and smallmouth bass fishing trips on the Buffalo National River in north central Arkansas. We are a Buffalo National Scenic River (National Park Service) approved fishing and camping outfitter. On Buffalo River trips, we camp on riverbank gravel bars at the rivers edge. For White River camp trips, Cotter Trout Dock owns Smith Island, a private 15-acre island at the confluence of the White River and Buffalo River. Great for family vacations, customer appreciation and employee reward groups or just one boat full of friends. Canoe rentals & shuttle service also available. Fully licensed and insured. Established 1954.
