Our family has come here several times and we always have a great time. We usually stay in one of the cabins and they are wonderful. The fish hatchery is the best part for the kids. They love to go feed the trout.

I've visited Bennett Springs many times over the years with family and friends, and have loved every trip. Flowers and sprouts in the spring, cool swims in the spring during summer, amazing autumn colors, tons of trout, plenty of picnic areas and restrooms, and miles of incredible hiking. Even if you're not an angler or a hiker, Bennett Springs is... More

We spent one night. Several owls serenaded us. Camp site was spacious. Restroom/showers were clean and comfortable. We would return. We enjoyed the fish hatchery.

We took our kids here for an over night camp trip. They loved feeding the fish. We didn't fish and glad we didn't. The river was very crowded. We walked the trail to the spring. I enjoyed it but the trail was very iffy for small kids or elderly. Some parts of the trail was very narrow. Will return but... More

there are no fish cleaning stations. Also it is a smaller river than Montauk trout park, Nice store, nice people. Fun place. Very very pretty.

I am a regular at Montauk State Park near Licking, MO, but we decided to give Bennett a try over the Labor Day weekend. We camped in a reserved spot, which was nice with concrete pads, full hook-ups, etc. However, the trees were small, so there was a lot of sun on the campground. The fishing was OK/good, but the...

This place used to be a good place to bring your kids and camp. I learned how to fish here back in the day but find it very hard to bring my kids here and teach them. The summer crowd is horrible. Most people that go to Bennett now are there to drink and party. I usually make a point... More

My family and I just returned from a great trip to Bennett Springs State Park. My Nephew is really into fishing and we all decided a trip to Bennett would be great fun. My wife and I love to fish for trout, but being from Arizona we normally troll for them in high mountain lakes. We were looking forward to... More

We camped in the lower campground. It was within walking distance of the fishing stream. And close to the pool. Very busy place, make reservations. Fun activities for kids, our favorite was the night hike. We also did a canoe trip - weekdays are more kid friendly on the river. We had kids ranging from 4 to 13 in our... More

We walked the 2/3 mile trail and there are so many different areas to fish or watch. Ate at the lodge and it was built by the CCC's and what history in the area!! Great day... More
