Missouri Conservation Heritage Fund Project:

HELP FISHING ACCESS AND SAFETY AT BENNETT SPRING STATE PARK

Help MCHF  raise $45,000 to build a fishing/viewing platform near the Bennett Spring Fish Hatchery.
Bennett Spring is one of the most popular trout fishing areas in Missouri, attracting as many as 180,000 anglers each year. Bennett Spring State Park and the Department of Conservation Hatchery are two of the most popular attractions in southwest Missouri.

 

 
One of the most popular fishing and viewing areas is the site directly below the scenic dam and waterfall. Anglers and tourists access this area by walking down a steep hill next to the Department Hatchery Office to a rough concrete surface next to the spring branch. The rough concrete pad is in need of replacement.

 

The renovated fishing access will provide improved public access and reduce safety concerns. If we provide the funds, the Department will construct a new 72-foot concrete platform that will have anglers inches from the water. This structure will also enhance the stability of the bank below the dam and adjacent to the hatchery building.

DONATE NOW to this project. You must place BENNETT SPRING PLATFORM in the Designation Box on the page.
