Welcome to Bennett Spring State Park
 

In the mid-19th century, settlers found Bennett Spring to be an ideal spot for grist and flour mills. Today, most people come to Bennett Spring State Park to struggle with the rainbow trout, or just to marvel at the 100,000,000 gallons of clear, cool water that gush from the spring each day.

The spring valley - once a popular camping ground for farmers waiting for their grain to be ground at the mill - still attracts visitors interested in camping, hiking and canoing. A Bennett Spring "hike" can be a leisurely stroll along the tree-shaded spring branch, or an invigorating seven miles to tour an interesting natural tunnel. Those looking for less rugged pleasures will enjoy the rental housekeeping cabins, the public swimming pool and the park's rustic dining lodge.

Fishing enthusiasts will be found casting their lines along the spring branch, while others visit the exhibits interpreting Missouri's springs and natural environment at the nature center. Now, at 3,216 acres, the state park that arose around Peter Bennett's spring continues to delight all comers.

Testimonials
My name is Cherrilaine Hostetler I have been going to Bennett Spring State Park ever since I moved down here, and I have been living 9 miles away from it since I was 2 and a half. This is most beautiful and peaceful place I have been to every time you turn around someone with a helping hand or just a smile is always around the corner. When it comes right down to it, Bennett Springs is the home to most of us but I have worked there and spent most of my time there and in time dreams have came true there,and so many memories have been made there by so many families. If I had a say in it to me and im sure for most people its a true meaning when one says that its a magical place. All your stress is just gone when you get there you can relax, and enjoy the nature and all of its beauty. Now that i have a child of my own I now understand the importance of it and my son will be took there for family memories to be made. To me Bennett Springs is not just a place for family and friends to come together, but it gives people a way to reconnect with nature and its beauty, and it reminds us why we have to take care and preserve it for the future generations and many more generations to come. Its a like a church but its natures medication and its natures way of teaching us what its all about,well at least it was that way for me.
