Copper John’s Resort sits right on the banks of the White River and only a mile below the Bull Shoals Lake Dam which makes it the perfect spot during times of low water to test out your wade fishing skills. Grab your waders and gear and get ready for the best wade fishing experience.
From those who have never fished a day in their life to those who call themselves a pro, guided fishing is the way to go. Let Copper John’s take you out on a guided fishing tour and show you the best places to reel in an award winning catch.
Outdoor Fire Pits
One of the best parts of choosing to stay at Copper John’s Resort is meeting new people. Not only will our outdoor fire pits keep you warm during the cool night air, they are also a great place to hang out and make new friends. You can find one fire pit on the main patio common area. There are also individual fire pits at the Anna Kay, Zug Bug, Humpy Fly, and Royal Coachman cabins/lodging.
Copper John’s offers a little more privacy than most camp and RV parks. Our bathhouse contains FOUR individual bathrooms with a large walk-in shower and services the five camper cabins and RV park. In addition to the individual bathrooms, guests can use the “everybody kitchen” located on the backside of the bathhouse building.
Copper John’s Resort offers the only fully stocked fly fishing tackle shop on the upper end of the White River. The Fly Shop offers rods, reels, waders & boots, fly fishing vests, fleece wear, fly tying materials & hooks, pre-tied flies, and eyewear.

Arkansas State Parks are some of the most beautiful state parks in the nation. Copper John’s Resort is only a hop, skip, and a jump from the Bull Shoals - White River State Park. There are several activities you can do while visiting the state park such as taking a tour through the James A. Gaston Visitor Center overlooking the Bull Shoals Dam in the observation tower, going on guided trail walks to learn more about the area, or having a picnic with a breathtaking view of the lake.
If you want to take the night off from cooking, you can find dining options for the entire crew nearby. In Bull Shoals, you can drop into Connie’s Cafe, Hank and Katie’s Bakery and Cafe, Hwy.178 Club, or Bush’s Pizza. Don’t forget to try out Beacon Point Restaurant in Lakeview. And if you don’t mind a little more of a drive, you can find The Ranch House at the Missouri/Arkansas line on Hwy. 5.
