Rivercliff: White River Fishing Resort is less than 5 minutes from several parks with playground equipment. Or take the Dam tour. Or go to Dam Site Park. Then go to the Gaston's Visitors Center that overlooks the whole Dam thing! (Must be at least 6 years old to go inside the dam.) Do not forget, the Number 1 Arkansas State Park is less than a mile away, if you feel like a little walk about! You do not have to stick to the cool water of the White River if you want to jump in Bull Shoals Lake, it is right up the road.
The $4.7 - million center is an environmental education learning center and feature interpretation of the river, dam and lake and their histories. State-of-the-art interpretive exhibits are in the lobby, along with a gift shop, and Johnboat Theater and Exhibit Hall, a 1,720-square-foot area filled with images of the river, lake and dam. An observation tower, gift shop, two classrooms and park offices are also a part of the center.
