Bennett Springs is an unincorporated community and census-designated place in Dallas and Laclede counties, Missouri, United States. As of the 2010 census it had a population of 130. It lies west of Lebanon on Missouri Route 64. The community is named after a spring that is reported variously as the third or fourth largest in the state, with an average daily flow of about one hundred million gallons, and which is the centerpiece of Bennett Spring State Park.

Bennett Spring State Park is the flagship of the Missouri Trout Parks. The park draws over 1 million people a year, and it features the largest spring of the four parks. Trout fishing, camping, and hiking are the main activities in the park, and the park also offers cabins, a swimming pool, nature center, and a full-service store.
