Warm Hospitality at Driftwood Resort

**2024 Traveler Review Award 8.7 out of 10, 2024 Certificate of Excellence Award-9.2 Reviewscore, 2022 Best of Bull Shoals Award.**

Escape the hustle and bustle.  Welcome to your Oasis! Embrace tranquility with this remarkable property. Discover a timeless retreat, established in 1953.  Crafted from reclaimed timber from an Iowa water tower, our four distinct buildings house 13 charming rooms. While our views may vary with the seasons, they never fail to captivate our guests.  Nestled amidst tranquil woodlands, we offer a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.  Our resort combines a retro vibe with modern comforts and impeccable service.  For 70 years, we’ve been a beloved destination for anglers, families, couple and corporate gatherings and anyone seeking relaxation and natural beauty.  It’s time to make memories with family and friends.  Enjoy some fun in the sun and a great relaxing atmosphere when you plan your next trip at Driftwood Resort.  Located just beyond the shores of Bull Shoals Lake, this outdoor getaway offers comfortable retro accommodations and wonderful outdoor activities including fishing, boating, hiking, rafting, sightseeing and wandering around other small town. Tour the 350 million year old caverns, James Caston’s Visitors Center, AR boat tours, 1890 Mountain Village, local concerts or just relax at our large pool.  We are four blocks from the Bull Shoals Lake Boat Dock/Marina and two miles from the famous White River.

Combine that with fine facilities, our philosophy that warm hospitality is the mainstay of our service and it is understandable why so many folks keep returning for 20+ years, some of them several times a year.

In addition to recreation facilities at the resort, guided fishing trips on the lake, the White and Buffalo Rivers and Crooked Creek are available. The same is true for water sports, ski and pontoon boats,  jet ski, scuba diving gear and instruction.

Stay in a sleeping or kitchenette room (fully equipped), or our 2 or 3 or 5 bedroom connecting rooms or the entire resort.  Stay for the night, week or month.  Just let us know.
