- The clear blue waters of Stockton Lake make Stockton State Park an ideal destination for water recreation. The 24,900-acre Stockton Lake was created when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers completed a dam across the Sac River near Stockton in 1970. Since then, the lake has become a favorite spot for fishing, swimming, skiing, scuba diving, and especially sailing. The open topography of the area allows a dependable southwest breeze for sailing.
- Stockton State Park offers a beautiful area that is wonderful for bird watching, viewing wildlife, photography, fishing, exercising, and enjoying the beauty of nature.
- If you're feeling adventurous, take sailing lessons at our American Sailing Association (ASA) 2009, 2010, & 2011 Top Ranked Sailing School. Captain and Instructor Larry Strait (named Outstanding Instructor of the year by ASA for 2009 & 2011) and Instructor Ben Jagears will teach you how to navigate the waters of pristine Stockton Lake and you will be sailing in no time!
See the Sailing School page for more information.
- If you're around in April, join us for the Annual "Havin' A Crappie Day 5k and 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk" to help raise funds to implement trails into the park for family enjoyment, learning, and exercise. See our Crappie Day 5k page to learn how you can participate, co-sponsor, or volunteer. Our goal for our 5th annual race in 2014 is to have over 200 participants!
- The park is a great place to bring the family for some summer fun. Check out our Other Events page for Summer 2013 events such as the "Celebrate the Great American Backyard Campout" and the Water Trail ribbon cutting.
- Stockton State Park is also a great place to log your miles for the 100 Missouri Miles challenge. Not familiar? You can run, hike, walk, bike, roll, swim, or paddle your way to 100 miles - all while enjoying our beautiful state. Visit the website to start logging today. It's free!
- After a fun-filled day of activity, visitors can relax and camp under the stars at one of the park's basic or electric campsites, or rent a log camper cabin, or duplex cabins with kitchenettes. If you have a larger group or family and want a great view of the lake, check out our newest addition - our 3 bedroom house.
Check out our Specials page for great deals on boat rentals and lodging throughout the season.
Would you like to bring your four legged pal to the park with you? Check out our lodging page for more information about the "Cabins for Canines" program. This program is currently available in the camper cabins.
