Yes. The Dock/ramp opens at 7 am and closes at 5 pm. However; please note that Winter hours may apply and that means the Dock/ramp hours are from 8 am to 4 pm. The Dock/ramp will close at 4 pm. You will need to check with the Office to determine what hours apply. There is no Dock or tie up space available for rent or usage.
No. We reserve the Dock space for our Guide boats and rental boats. Please note that when bringing your own boat, there is parking space for registered guests for boats on trailers. Boats are not permitted to be tied to the dock or any Stetson’s property such as trees or fences with no exceptions so as to not damage property. The river generation levels are not controlled by Stetson’s or any other Resort on the White River. We do not know when or if water generation will occur or how much.
Yes. Stetson’s provides rental boats for registered guests of Stetson’s only. Rental hours are from 7 am to 5 pm daily. The Dock/ramp closes at 5 pm and all rental boats are to be returned to the Dock prior to 5 pm.
**Winter hours are 8 am to 4 pm with the Dock/ramp closing at 4 pm. You will need to check with the Office to determine what hours apply.
We suggest reserving a boat for rent when making your reservation. Unlike other resorts, we charge a flat fee for half day or full day rentals that include gas, personal flotation devices and seats in the fee. We do charge a late fee for any rental boat returned after Dock/ramp closing times. A maximum of 4 persons only are allowed in the boat at one time. We do not provide anchors or drag chains.
Prior to leaving the dock, you will have a Stetson's staff member look over the boat with you. Any damage which occurs while the boat or included property is in the renter's possesion, no matter how slight is the responsibility of the person renting the boat. A sunk boat/motor will result in a non-refundabe fee of $1000. The replacement cost of the Boat and/or any property lost will be charged to the renting person; in addition to the recovery fee of $1000.

No. No smoking is allowed in any building on Stetson’s property. All smoking is outside of the Cabins, Lodge and Pool areas. Smoking receptacles are provided at the Cabins and other various areas for your convenience in disposing of cigarette butts and assisting in a clean environment for all guests.
Cleanup fee for smoking in Cabins is $250. Once Cleaning Staff notifies the Office that smoking in a Cabin has occurred, the cleaning fee of $250 will be charged to the credit card on file immediately.
Our hours of operation for the dock and launch ramp are 7 am to 5 pm daily. Winter hours the dock and ramp are open from 8 am to 4 pm daily.
Due to insurance and liability reasons we lock the dock and ramp at 5 pm in non-winter hours and lock the dock/ramp at 4 pm during winter hours. If you plan to be on the river past the 5 pm or 4 pm hours, the White Hole public access is about 1.5 miles from Stetson’s. We know this may seem like an inconvenience, but we require rental boats to be returned to the Dock prior to 5 pm or 4 pm when applicable and we strive to be fair to those renting boats by closing the Dock and Ramp at the required hours for all parties.
Yes. Our pool is open seasonally and is located right alongside of the beautiful White River. Our pool opens generally around Memorial Day weekend and closes the end of September. Due to weather considerations in the area, we do not provide date specific opening or closing of the pool season. Hours for pool use when open are from 9 am to 8 pm. No lifeguard is on duty so please observe pool rules. Dogs are not permitted in the pool area for health reasons. The Pool area is non-smoking and includes no alcoholic beverages and no audio equipment of any kind (music).
We provide meals for groups of 8 or more persons in our Lodge. When making reservations for a group of 8 or more we can provide the menu items available as well as costs. If you do not have eight or more in your party you can ask if we are preparing meals for a group and if we are, you can ask to be included. We have space available for you to have your meal separately from the group of eight or more. We do require a minimum of 1 weeks’ notice to include you due to the fact that we order our food just prior to making meals to ensure the quality of the food we provide.
Cancellation of Reservation
We know that situations arise that are beyond our control, but when customers book services, we then ensure that we do not make any reservations that would impact those specific services requested. As a result, we lose the opportunity to book other customers; therefore, cancellations have a direct impact on Stetson’s, other potential customers and Staff such as Guides that are specialized services that require planning and preparation time. Re-booking your Lodging and/or services with another customer is difficult if not impossible on short notice.
