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