We spent about an hour there and enjoyed the visit. We aren't fishermen, but enjoyed the park and the information presented. Ate dinner at the lodge which was a good experience... nice and convenient. Our state parks are treasures and should be visited!

Excellent campgrounds and beautiful State Park. Camping, canoeing, trout fishing, hiking, and friendly relaxed atmosphere. Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner at the lodge.

This is a trout farm, and a place to go fly fishing. Very quiet and peaceful. Even if you don't fish, it's a peaceful setting, and a nice place to take a walk or just enjoy a leisurely afternoon and a picnic. Dog-friendly. Dogs are...More

Bennett Springs State Park is a cool and mostly quiet haven where one can have some quiet time and enjoy some beautiful scenery and classic depression-era stone construction. The fishing is enjoyable, but unless you like crowds, don't go on March 1, which is the...More

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.
