Conveniently located directly on Interstate 44 in the heart of the South-Central Missouri Ozarks, Lebanon offers an experience for just about any interest! If the outdoors are calling you, they’re likely whispering “Lebanon.” Three-time winner of Outdoor Life Magazine’s “Top 200 Towns for Sportsmen,” Lebanon-Laclede County will feed your hunger for the great outdoors. Bust out your fishing gear as you reel in the big ones from the Niangua River, the Gasconade River, and the Osage Fork. Enjoy the scenic beauty of the Ozarks by leisurely floating down the river, truly a favorite Missouri past time. Head over to Bennett Spring State Park, one of Missouri's favorite and oldest state parks that doubles as a trout fisherman's haven. The park features a hatchery with free tours and a full service restaurant that will cook your catch. With a little something for everyone, you’ll also find a playground, nature center, and 12 miles of hiking trails and natural tunnels. Whether you prefer to pitch a tent, roll into our full-service RV park, or relax in a cozy cabin, our wide variety of lodging choices will have you covered.
