Stockton Lake


Masters is located on Stockton Lake in the scenic Ozark Mountains of southwestern Missouri. The lake and surrounding landscape offer countless recreational opportunities along nearly 300 miles of shoreline, providing visitors with many ways to explore one of the most sought-after natural areas in the state. Fishing, hunting, camping, sailing, boating and scuba diving are popular activities.


Boating is a popular pastime at the lake. Sailing is especially popular and the lake hosts several races each year. The park provides a boat ramp for easy access to the water. A swimming beach and an accessible fishing dock are also on-site. The waters of Stockton Lake are home to several species of fish including small and largemouth bass, crappie, white bass, walleye, catfish and sunfish, making it an ideal destination for anglers.


Masters is open year-round. It offers two reservable shelters, a boat ramp, beach, and fishing dock.

Natural Features

The land surrounding the lake contains hundreds of acres of native prairie grasses, rolling hills and thick forests that turn crimson in autumn. An abundance of wildlife lives around the water, including wild turkey, great blue heron, deer and bald eagles. Visitors can learn about the lake's bald eagles at the area's annual eagle-watching event hosted each winter.

Nearby Attractions

Three full-service marinas are located around the lake, offering a wide range of services and supplies, including boat rentals, fuel, fishing tackle and restaurants.
