I am planning on taking the family to Bennett Springs for a couple of days to camp and catch some trout. The wife wants to know what else is near there to do after they get bored of fishing.

Any suggestions?

Not much, really. You can float the Niangua for one thing.

Other Activities
In addition to fishing, park visitors can enjoy 12 miles of hiking trails, with an abundance of wildlife and wildflowers to be found along the paths. Area outfitters can provide float trips on the Niangua River. The Nature Interpretive Center is a great place to get an overview of the park’s wildlife, as well as to learn the history of the spring.

Oh, and Springfield is about an hour away, if you want to make the drive.

Um ... walk in the woods, sit in the woods, lay in the woods, crap in the woods ...

There's not much else other than fishin'. Kinda what it's there for.

Springfield, however, isn't all that far away if she's fine with a few hour drive back and forth to find civilization.

There's some stuff in Lebanon (about 20 mins away), but nothing too exciting.

Lake of the Ozarks has all the shopping and stuff, its a little closer about 30 minutes than Springfield.

Good idea. Ha Ha Tonka State Park is pretty cool.

Anymore I can make it from Branson to Springfield sans traffic in about 35 min. All four lane.
