Overview
More
The valley that cradles Bennett Spring has created a place of peace and recreation that has welcomed generations of enthusiastic anglers. Bennett Spring State Park is one of Missouri’s earliest state parks and continues today to attract fishermen and nature lovers seeking to make new memories. More than 100 million gallons of clear, cool water gush from Bennett Spring each day and form a spring branch stocked daily with rainbow trout waiting for lucky fishermen. Fishing may be the main draw but the park also offers many other amenities such as a dining lodge, campgrounds, cabins and hiking trails. Whether you are a traditional fishing enthusiast or someone seeking a place to relax and refresh, Bennett Spring State Park has what you need to make every trip one to remember.

Bennett Spring is a fish hatchery. You can walk up to the head of the spring, observe the hatchery, and, of course, fish. There's a nice restaurant on premises (decent, fairly priced food). You need to be aware of the rules and time periods for...More

Well kept gorgeous scenery, nice place to spend the day. Play ground for the grandkids to play and everyone there is friendly and polite. What more could you ask for?

We arrived too early to check into our cabin so took a walk around the grounds and hatchery. Enjoyed watching those trout fishing and wished we had a pole.

I'm not sure I can answer that accurately so you may want to call Bennett Springs directly at 800-334-6946. It is not long though and is readily accessible with motor homes and 5th wheels if that is your concern.

Just saw this question. Don't think you can ride an ATV in the state park but maybe places around there.
