Are you looking for something new to do w/ your family? We recommend a trip to Bennett Spring State Park. We booked one of their cabins, rented waders and fished to our hearts content. The staff at the park is super friendly and very helpful. There are fly fishing lessons for those who would like to learn. The restaurant will... More

Feed the baby fish, its awesome for young and old. Bring a cup to hold the food to give to the trout. Throw one pellet at a time and watch the fish jump for it

One of the most beautiful parks I have been to. Something for everyone. Fish hatcheries are amazing.

Gorgeous place just wish they would get the construction (destruction) done and over with. It really takes away from the beauty of the park

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...
