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
Last Labor Day weekend we held the rehersal dinner for my sons wedding at the Dining Lodge. It was the nicest place around the area to have such an event. Though I was a bit lerry of having to be served from the buffet but it not only worked out well the food was good. The selection had something for everone. The Lodge Manager and her staff were perfect hosts and no one lacked for fast service which was served up with a genuinely friendly smile. The couple got married on the river bank at a locally owned private resort and I was afraid we would have to drive a long was to find a nic, clean place with a great atmosphere and desent food. After seeing the Lodge and talking to the staff the decision to have the dinner here was a no brainer. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a classy place to hold such an event near the river to come here. Thanks Gals, Randy Presley
