Gaston Cemetery sits beside nature trail at Gaston's Resort

     Alongside the nature trail at Gaston's Resort near Lakeview, you will find the gravesite of Eric Alan Gaston (1964 - 1995).  His appears to be the only grave in the small cemetery.  His grave is marked with a large commercial gravestone that includes his dates of birth and death, as well as a photograph.  Eric Gaston was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Jim Gaston, owners of the property.

     To access the cemetery, drive past the Gaston's Resort Restaurant all the way to the end of the long row of cabins.  The nature trail begins here.  Follow the trail to the right.  As soon as the trail makes a bend to the right, you will see the cemetery.  The gravesite overlooks the White River.

     A mile or so from the resort is a wildflower meadow trail that was created and donated by the Gastons' in memory of their son.  This short trail adjoins the Bull Shoals-White River State Park along the county road leading to Gaston's Resort.
