The town of Norfork, Arkansas, located at the confluence of the North Fork River and the White River, is one of the oldest settled areas in northern Arkansas. It's most famous landmark is the Wolf House, property of Baxter County, which underwent a major historic restoration. It was the first site in Baxter County to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Norfork's bridge over the White River is also on the Register, as is a local bed and breakfast and Horace Mann school buildings.

Norfork, population 511 (2010 U.S. Census), is in north central Arkansas on Arkansas Highway 5, southeast of Mountain Home. On the banks of both the North Fork and the White Rivers, Norfork is a delightful place for fishermen to spend some peaceful time. Whether it's fly fishing from the handicapped walk-in access area on the North Fork or floating either (or both!) rivers with any of our first-class guides, be prepared for some fishing action.
