The valley that cradles Bennett Spring has created a place of peace and recreation that has welcomed generations of enthusiastic anglers. Bennett Spring State Park is one of Missouri’s earliest state parks and continues today to attract fishermen and nature lovers seeking to make new memories. More than 100 million gallons of clear, cool water gush from Bennett Spring each day and form a spring branch stocked daily with rainbow trout waiting for lucky fishermen. Fishing may be the main draw but the park also offers many other amenities such as a dining lodge, campgrounds, cabins and hiking trails. Whether you are a traditional fishing enthusiast or someone seeking a place to relax and refresh, Bennett Spring State Park has what you need to make every trip one to remember.

Stop by the Bennett Springs trout hatchery. Definitely a must see and great place to stay in MO! Recommend Riverfront campground for accommodations, canoe/raft rentals and a scenic place to stay.

CCC era dining room is a historical delight. Food is only average but service is amazing. Visit the parks historical CCC points of interest and don't forget this park is famous for trout fishing in the cold water of the spring.

We have enjoyed camping at Bennett Springs. The only down side to us was that there were no fish cleaning stations like Roaring River has. People just clean their fish and toss the remains right back in the river. Kind of messy.

A haven for fly fishing sportspeople worldwide, the park is also a local favorite for hiking, picnicking, and just enjoying the beautiful spring-fed stream.

I'm not sure I can answer that accurately so you may want to call Bennett Springs directly at 800-334-6946. It is not long though and is readily accessible with motor homes and 5th wheels if that is your concern.

Just saw this question. Don't think you can ride an ATV in the state park but maybe places around there.
