We camped in the full hookup campground and loved it. The pull-through was nice and level and the whole park is just beautiful. We don't trout fish, which is the big draw here, but spent three nights and truly enjoyed everything about this place. Full hookup sites must be reserved well in advance, it seems. We ate at The Lodge, which is the restaurant built by the CCC back in the 20s. Lovely place with very good food. We loved it here and will definitely come back. We camped at Bennett Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful state park with excellent trout fishing. Nice flat concrete pads. Clean and kept well. We camped at Bennett Springs State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Too bad we are only staying here one night. This is an absolutely beautiful park and campground. We stayed in the full hookup CG near the entrance. The camp site was paved with concrete and pretty level. We could leave our toad hooked up since we had a pull through. The utilities were more than adequate. You will want to use a water pressure regulator here. The only thing that was a problem was the confusing signs directing us to the campground. Sorry we had no time to try out the trout fishing that brings most people here. We would certainly return here if we are ever in this area. We camped at Bennett Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

This campground is one of our favorites! It does get busy in the summer and we prefer staying early or late in the season to avoid the crowds. Trails are amazing. Worth the hike to the tunnel. Neatest little old cemetery tucked in a few miles in. One thing that turns me off is that there are usually gross fish guts in the water, wish people were more considerate about where they gut their fish. Would suggest avoiding the kids fish free weekend in May. Loop One, as people have mentioned, is totally flat and has full hookups, but sites are close, in full sun, little privacy. The sites up the hill are much better, heavily wooded, and well-spaced. Things do get a bit noisy, lots of activity. Restaurant is a plus. The newest shower house has individual rooms, which is nice with small children. There was a new shower house in another loop that had not yet opened when we were there. We camped at Bennett Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice, large park, ton's of fishing going on. Stayed in campground #2 and yes as past have said it is a large hill going up from #1. Overall had a nice stay. Weekenders were a little loud, but expected. Sites were spread out nicely. Was surprised though how trashy the sites were. Spent a good half hour picking up bottle caps,wrappers and cigarette butts 6" from the fire ring,really :< (I smoked for 34 years and at least could make the ring and burn them.) The dump area is very poorly designed it runs downhill and left to right (even using blocks), so didn't get a good dump and had to re-flush at Loves on the way home. All in all,yes, we would stay there again if in the area. We camped at Bennett Springs State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Trout fishing is the big draw here. It is an extremely popular park and people come from all over the midwest to stay here. We don't fish, but really enjoyed hiking the trails, and watching the fishermen. It is one of the few parks in Missouri where the restaurant is open during the week during the fishing season-- March 1- Oct 31, so that was a bonus for us. As other reviewers have pointed out, Loop 1 is near the river, with Loops 2 and 3 further up a large hill, and Loops 4 and 5 even higher and further up the hill. The full hookups are in loop 1, and are reserved well in advance. We stayed in loop 5, which is all first come, first served. It had some nice, private sites, but the restroom in this loop had not been remodeled, as had the ones in the other loops. In our loop wi-fi was available but so slow we abandoned trying to use it. The park is immaculately maintained, and the nature center was interesting. The dining lodge was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), along with some of the pavilions and the river gauge. Bennett Spring itself was beautiful, with a flow of over 100 million gallons a day. Our rate reflects electric only hookup, and a $2 resident disability discount. We camped at Bennett Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

This is our first time here, and we were very surprised that it was as nice as it is. Beautiful area, very clean, and well laid out. We have a 39ft. motorhome and there is a very narrow and scary bridge coming in, but there is another entrance up the hill on Hwy 64. We were here in November so the water was turned off, but everything was there. We will return. We camped at Bennett Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

I have stayed at Bennett Springs State Park campground for years now and have always enjoyed the place. There are 5 different campgrounds but we stayed in campground 1 where all sites are full hookups with concrete pads. Campgrounds 2 thru 5 are located on top of a steep hill and sit in the trees. They are nice campgrounds as well, but only offer 30 amp service with no water or sewer. There are places to fill your holding tanks and the dump station in nicely located and easily accessible. If you wish to stay in campground one I would advise you to plan ahead and make a reservation since this campground stays pretty full during the summer. The trout fishing is excellent as are the play grounds, hiking trails and pool. We camped at Bennett Springs State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped here for the weekend. We came for the trout fishing and stayed at Campground 4. The campground is very nice and clean. All facilities are in excellent working order and very clean. The sites are a little bit on the small side and somewhat cramped together. We were a little disappointed that campground 4 was so far away from the fishing area. We had to drive to the spring as it was too far to walk. Campground 1 seems like a better choice for those interested in fishing. We camped at Bennett Springs State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful park: we come here twice a year, spring and fall. On of my favorites. The sites are big and almost always level. Very clean. Great lodge for breakfast but I haven't had any other meals here. Also, I have used the rental cabins here too. Those were very nice but rather pricey. The trout hatchery is very neat. We camped at Bennett Springs State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This review is for Campground 4. It is up a steep hill and in the woods. Roads and sites are asphalt. There are both level and unlevel sites. Sites are electric only. It is a very rustic area. We hadn't made reservations and couldn't get a site in Campground 1 which is full hookups and where most big rigs stay. It is more park like with paved sites, grass and a few trees. I would give Campground 1 a considerably higher rating than Campground 4. We camped at Bennett Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

Spent only one night, but from our observations this is a great, clean park. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our corner site was a level concrete pad surrounded by grass. Plan to return in future to explore further. We camped at Bennett Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

The only reason that we did not give this park an excellent rating is because of the park hosts. There are to many of them. They visit only with each other. They are snippy if you ask a question or request printed material. I asked for the location of a coin laundry and no one could tell me or offer where I could get the information. The host in site 117 across from us had a tail gate party several evenings and was very loud. I asked them after 10:30 to please adhere to the quite hour rules and was met with blank stares. They continued to party another hour after my request. It is difficult to get a reservation in area 1 and we counted over 8 host spots being occupied. They fished and visited with each other but we could see no other results of having so many hosts in one area. We camped at Bennett Springs State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
