Bennett Springs State Park

Bennett Spring State Park is a haven for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts alike nestled in the heart of Missouri. Originally established in the mid-19th century by pioneers who harnessed the cool, rushing waters of the spring-fed stream for gristmills, the park has since evolved into one of America’s premier trout fishing destinations.

The Park spans a lush 3,338 acres, offering ample opportunities for camping, hiking, and appreciating nature. For those interested in fishing, the park provides the perfect setting with a daily supply of rainbow trout, making it a popular spot among anglers. Additionally, the park has a trout hatchery that supports this thriving fishing environment.

One of the park’s main attractions is its varied and scenic hiking trails. These trails range from the easy, 0.6-mile Spring Trail. In fact, some trails are adorned with colorful wildflowers. Conversely, other trails are more rugged and challenging.

The park also features a nature center that showcases Missouri’s springs and natural environment through interactive exhibits and guided tours.
