STOCKTON STATE PARK
Sail away on the clear waters of Stockton Lake. Fish, water ski, scuba dive, swim or just relax. Whatever your preference, Stockton State Park can satisfy your craving for water recreation.
The Stockton area's open topography creates a dependable southwest breeze perfect for sailing. Fishermen can cast their lines for bass, crappie, walleye, catfish and bluegill.

A swimming beach accommodates visitors who would rather play in the water than on it.

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 motel room or duplex cabin with kitchenette.
