I've tent camped here a handful of times, most recently this past weekend. The state park is full of beauty, history, fly-fishing, and cool waters. The staff are friendly and helpful. I secured my tent site in advance with the on-line reservations, but they keep an entire loop open to first come, first served, something that is important for travelers... More

I've been coming here for years and have always enjoyed Bennett. I took my 11 year old daughter this week. She worked on her fly fishing skills and did a great job! The water is diverse and there are great spots for a beginner to practice all types of casts. We stayed by the Spring, in of the new units,... More

We have been here many times camping and trout fishing. Its worth the drive and worth the challenge to try and catch trout. Sometimes they are hungry and sometimes they won't bite on a thing. But then again, thats why they call it fishing and not catching!

Absolutely had a blast with the family fishing, hiking, and just enjoying nature. We will definitely be back. Very family focused, young and old.

Bennett Springs have yet to let me down from the 10+ years myself and my family have been coming down to fish/get away from busy city life. Great trout fishing locations with three zones. I had the best lucks around the waterfall area with the flies/lure area and the bridge at the natural bait area. It's so peaceful and relaxing... More

I have been fishing at Bennett Springs since I was young. This was our first time camping in the state park. This was also my children's first camping experience, and they loved it. I have always been pleased with how clean the park is, and how great the people who work at the park are. Although we didn't catch any... More

Bennett Springs is a beautiful place to visit and fish. The water is cold and clear making it a great wading experience in the summer months when it's hot outside. The trout are plentiful but sometimes very elusive to catch. Week days are the least crowded to fish. They have a large trout hatchery where you can whip the fish... More

Took a long weekend to Bennett Springs. Such a beautiful place to visit. Did some fishing, toured the hatchery, hiked a couple trails, ate some soft serve ice cream. Great weekend getaway.

Good dining room for lunch. Great fishing even in the rain. The camping area was great for a travel pop up. Good areas for small children to experience trout fishing. Wish they had a fish cleaning station like some of the other state parks.
