Stockton State Park is a public recreation area occupying 2,176 acres (881 ha) on the shore of Stockton Lake, nine miles (14 km) south of Stockton, Missouri. The state park occupies a northward jutting peninsula between the Big Sac and Little Sac arms of the 25,000-acre (10,000 ha) lake, which was created when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers dammed the Sac River in 1969.
