About Us

Visit RiverWood Resort and Lebanon/Bennett Spring Missouri

RiverWood Resort has been developed to provide a relaxing and private access to the Niangua River for our guests. We are located one mile downstream from Bennett Spring State Park in Missouri’s White Ribbon Trout waters (that means our waters hold trout year around). Our record so far this year was over 25 trout caught and released in one day in our waters. We welcome you whether you fly-fish, spincast or just enjoy the river.

Bennett Spring, a natural occurring spring in Bennett Spring State Park gushes forth 1,000,000 gallons of clear spring water every day (yes, one million) and with its trout hatchery is ranked the #1 Trout Fishing spot in Missouri and among the Top 3 in the Midwest. 
[trouttalk.net] The one and one-half mile Bennett Spring is stocked daily by the Park Service with 300,000 to 400,000 trout a year. Bennett Spring empties into the Niangua River where the Park Service stocks the river with another 3,000 to 4,000 trout a year.

One-half mile down-river from where Bennett Spring empties into the Niangua River is a 150 acre ranch with 1/2 mile of river frontage with softly rolling hills of pasture punctuated with stands of trees.   There is a stream named Little Danceyard Creek. We offer our guests an up-scale lodging resort of well-appointed lodges with a stone fireplace, full kitchen, nicely furnished, and some with a deck looking out to the river. All of our  Lodges feature king size beds, a fully appointed kitchen, linens, towels and many extras are furnished and decorated in a style to ensure our guests enjoy their visit.

RiverWood Resort is a participant in the Missouri Division Of Tourism website.
