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.

This is a great place to take the family during the summer. You can feed the fish, play on the playground equipment, or hike the trails. You can also get yummy soft serve ice cream in the shop!!!

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.

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.
