Things To Do At, And Near, Fish & Fiddle Resort

Take Advantage Of Our 20-Plus Years Of Helping Guests Plan A Lifetime Of Great Vacation Memories
Over the years we have helped literally thousands of people plan their vacation on Norfork Lake. Call us and we'll be glad to help you too.

The Basics
Fish & Fiddle Resort and the surrounding Ozark Mountains are mostly all about recreation in The Great Outdoors. Whether on land, river, or lake, you'll find a long list of activities to pursue. In addition there are also the basic in-town activities with a few unique attractions.

Read the activities summaries below, then click the links for photos and more details for any given activity.

On The Resort Grounds
Our resort property covers 12 acres. We have a large game room, a private dock with swim deck, a swimming pool, a play station with swings and sandbox, shuffle board, and yard games. For photos and details click the link above

Bring your own boat and moor it in our private dock for free. Or you can rent boats from close-by Tracy Marina. The clear clean water of Norfork Lake, and it's smooth surface, are a major reason our guests come here to water ski, wakeboard, kneeboard, tube, and just plain run around the lake. Water temperature is warm enough for watersports from around mid May through mid September. The hearty sorts who wear wet suits participate in these watersports from mid April through October.

No doubt about it, swimming is the most popular summer activity. Swim in our swimming pool, or swim in the lake. Scuba and snorkeling are in our swimming page information

In the spring and fall most of our guests come to fish or just relax without the watersports. Fishing is good all year, but the best months for fishing are March, April, and May, then again in late fall and early winter.

During August and most of September fishing is good, but fish run deeper. Walleye and stripers are usually about 40 feet down this time of year, and tend to run in schools. Roger will be happy to show you how to find the schools, how to get down to the fish, and the right lurers to use.

You can catch trout all year on the nearby North Fork and White rivers. For a real treat take a smallmouth bass fishing trip up the Buffalo river in early spring.

Area Attractions
Historical sites, The Ozark Folk Center, The National Fish Hatchery, several public picnic parks on the lake, shopping for true art, shopping for collectibles and antiques, and a long list of other things to go see are possible. You can take a short trip of a few hours, or you can make a day of it.

On The Town
There is little in the close-by City of Mountain Home Arkansas that you won't find in your own home town. Yet surprisingly a great many of our guests do go bowling, to movies, dine, and shop in Mountain Home. They tell us these common activities are far more fun when on vacation.

Out In Nature
Arkansas does not call itself The Natural State without good reason. Hiking, canoeing, birding, mountain bike trails, horseback riding, scenic drives, a rifle range, hunting, and backroading are all close by on public lands.

The Seasons
You can vacation all year here in the Ozarks. Visit our Seasons page to learn what the different seasons offer.
