Owner description: 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 Springs has is a pretty place to visit it has several hiking trails the one me and my 15 year old granddaughter went on was pretty strenuous and we never did make it to the spot we had to turn around and come back before it got dark so make sure you start early

Stop by the Bennett Springs trout hatchery. Definitely a must see and great place to stay in MO! Recommend Riverfront campground for accommodations, canoe/raft rentals and a scenic place to stay.

Returning home from Branson, we stopped at Bennett Spring one of Missouri’s State Parks, which we learned had also been a CCC camp. Fishermen were everywhere fishing for and catching trout. A man proudly lifted to show me his stringer of two beautiful trout that he had caught. We dined at their Lodge. One offering was soup and salad which my husband had. I ordered a vegetarian omelette which came with a side of hash browns, toast, and a slice of an orange. Both brunches were delicious. The park offers a very nice gift store and a huge camping area.
