“Trout Fishing, Trails, and Treks”

Reviewed May 06, 2017

Overall Rating

Trout Season starts in Missouri on March 1, and most of the spaces in Bennett Spring State Park are filled with excited anglers. After the opening rush subsides a bit, the real camping season gets going in earnest on April 15, when all the campgrounds open - the water is turned off to a couple of the sites until the real danger of a hard freeze is past.

Bennett Spring has five campgrounds - Campground 1 is on the lower level, near the Spring Branch and the Niangua River, and are level, paved, full hook-up sites. It is open year-round. Campgrounds 2 & 3 are up the hill behind Campground 1 and are either electric 30A sites or primitive. Some, in campground 2 are adjacent "family sites".

Campgrounds 4 & 5 are farther up the hill yet. The sites in 4 are all 30A electric, while campground 5 is a combination of 30A electric and primitive.

The park boasts a half-dozen hiking trails ranging from short, stream-side walks to a 5-hour trek down the Natural Tunnel Trail. Stop by the Nature Center for trail maps and further information. There are excellent displays explaining how the Ozark spring system was formed, as well as teh history of the area and the Depression-era CCC origins of many of the structures in the park.

There is a park store for basics, snacks, souvenirs and information for fishermen. Cabins are also available at Bennett Spring. Information available on the website or at the store.
