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.

A haven for fly fishing sportspeople worldwide, the park is also a local favorite for hiking, picnicking, and just enjoying the beautiful spring-fed stream.

Beautiful setting. Good place to hike. I am not much of a fisherman but it is busy to fish. I saw fishermen at arm's length from each other. The restaurant is great!

Bennett Spring is a lovely park and a nice place to visit if you're in the area. The fishing is famous (and, frankly for my tastes, too crowded), but the spring is lovely, the trout hatchery interesting, and the amenities of pretty high quality.

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!

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.
