Our Story
What began as a summer vacation destination in the late 1950's has become a family run lake front resort. Nestled in the trees at the top of a grass terrace, Hand Cove Resort offers relaxing family vacations and fishing base camps for guests from the Midwest to as far away as Canada and New Zealand for over 50 years.

Overlooking the shores of Norfork Lake, Hand Cove Resort in the Arkansas Ozark Mountains provides our guests with scenic views, fantastic fishing, and summertime water sport adventures. You might say we have big capabilities in a small resort setting. Conveniently located as the gateway to the famous Hand Cove / Jordan Recreation Area's Sand Island area beaches, Hand Cove Resort is your launch point for a more than relaxing Norfork Lake experience.

Hand Cove Resortís Ozark Mountain atmosphere and hospitality have a unique appeal to its guests, many who have enjoyed the natural beauty of this Norfork Lake resort for generations.

We are the Weinmann family that became the owners of Hand Cove Resort and RV Park in August of 2005. Greg heads the day to day operations. All of us have spent our careers in customer service and have traveled the country extensively as professionals. This coupled with Gregís 20 plus years of experience in mid and upper level facility management gives us a unique perspective to the needs and wants of todayís traveling and vacationing guest.

Our core expertise is providing memorable lakeside lodging and RV camping experiences for today's vacationers, but that's just the beginning. At Hand Cove Resort, we make it our business to exceed your expectations daily.

Our goal is simple. We want to give you the very best of Norfork Lake vacations.

We operate under one principle, treating every visitor as an honored guest. There is no exception to this rule.

We've made a lot of good friends over the years. We sincerely hope that you become one of them. Come stay with us and watch us grow.
