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.

Some of the best trout fishing in the nation! For the amount of commercialization and the number of people here you surprisingly still see a lot of wildlife. I've seen bald eagles, golden eagles, snakes, muskrats, beavers, etc. In the evening after fishing hours it's...More

We always have a great, affordable meal at the lodge. We have enjoyed watching the fly fishing and listening to the waterways. It is a great place for families and couples. We enjoy it even when it gets a little colder.

Most of the physical infrastructure of Bennett Spring State Park was built of native stone during the Depression, and retains a classic, graceful feel. As the beautiful stream winds its way towards the Niangua River, it provides good, cold water habitat for trout. Yes, 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.

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