Hand Cove Resort & RV Park

Nestled in the trees at the top of a grass terrace, Hand Cove Resort & RV Park has offered 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 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 world famous Hand Cove / Jordan Recreation Area's Sand Island area beaches and Norfork Lake fishing hot spots, Hand Cove Resort is your launch for a worry free Norfork Lake experience.


We are a unique resort with a “laid back” atmosphere. Somewhat secluded, yet still convenient to area attractions and shopping. Featuring fully equipped studio, 1 bedroom, and 2 bedroom lake front cabins; 20 full hook-up RV sites; 11 stall boat dock, swim deck, fish deck, dock pavilion, launch ramps, and wireless internet, Hand Cove Resort’s relaxed Ozark Mountain hospitality has a special appeal to its guests, many who have enjoyed the natural beauty of this Norfork Lake resort for generations.


We are a pet and kid friendly resort.


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.
