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
Just returned home from a four day stay at Bennett Springs and we loved it. We went down as a family of 10, for my mom and dad's 45th wedding anniversary. We took many previous trips as a family when all of us children were smaller with my dad's parents and his sisters and their families. But we had not been back for 25 years. A lot of memories were relived and a lot of new ones were made. This time my parents were the grandparents and one of my sisters and I were the parents and we took our five children. Our children's ages range from 4 to 17 and a good time was had by all. The park is so quiet and peaceful. We fished in the morning and relaxed at our cabin in the afternoon's and made a few trips to the nearby local attractions;which included Bass Pro, Lambert's restaurant, and the Wild Animal Safari. We will definately be back
