Cedar Ridge 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 campground provides two boat ramps 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.
Cedar Ridge Park is open year round. It offers 54 campsites, many of which have electric hookups. Twelve sites have been established for tent camping only. Flush toilets, showers, drinking water and a dump station are provided.
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.
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.

Beautiful views from many of the sites. I noticed several of the tent sites do not have level areas for your tent. T01 site does not have close parking unless you are able to park in the handcap parking. It is a quite park in the evening. Camp host is polite and shower house is kept clean. Vault toilet by the boat ramp is sketchy (where tent camping is located). Will stay here again.
This camp ground is located on a hill over looking Stockton Lake. There is a very nice boat launch ramp in the camp ground. Lots of shade! Good place to go when lake level is high.
