The place is 14 miles from I-44. The North entrance crosses a slanting low water bailey bridge so drive in the longer South Entrance. I camped at the RV Park. Be prepared to self pay and register. My first site lacked power so check before you go too far. Winter rates are $24.00. All sites were full hookup. $2 discount... More

This is a fun park. There a few little restaurants, hiking trails, trout fishing, camping, a hatchery and much more. The staff are friendly. We will be going back.. My 8 year old son acted as a tour guide on one of the hiking trails behind the conservation center. For a small fee, he will guide your tour. He is... More

We stayed at Bennett Spring with our small camper and were very impressed with the park itself and the facilities. The park is very busy, but we were able to get a spot in the first come-first serve lot. The park sells firewood ($1 cheaper than we paid at home), and I was pleasantly surprised by free coffee at the... More

We're in the RV in a full service camping spot soaking up the last rays of the summer. It's 75-100 yards to the trout stream. The restaurant is gearing up for the supper hour. There are several people here for this late in the season probably due to the unseasonably warm weather (high 70's). Another couple will be joining us... More

We spent 3 days trout fish and caught a lot of really nice trout. Beautiful park, clean and very relaxing. We try to come down a couple times a year.

This is a beautiful park. The trout fishing is fantastic, easy access for wheel chairs and a lot of parking up and down the stream. Even if you don't fish, come for the beauty. Lots of cabins and camping with a very helpful staff.

We didn't get to fish, but stopped by to spend a few hours on a warm, early autumn day. This park is always clean and well-maintained. There is a great general store with all the fishing necessities as well as gifts and ice cream. The Bennett Springs Dining Lodge is beautiful and has great, reasonably priced food. The spring bubbles... More
