Stockton is located in Rooks County in north-central Kansas. As of the 2000 census, the population was 1,558 residents. Stockton was founded in 1872 by cattle dealers who named their new home Stocktown, or as it soon became known as "Stockton." The town of Stockton is located on the natural trail up the valley of the South Solomon River. Attractions in the town include the historic courthouse and theater, the Old Log Hotel, which was the first hotel in Stockton, Cedar Links Golf Course and Stockton Park. Webster State Park is located just eight miles west of Stockton. Set among the rolling hills and open skies of northern Kansas, the park contains 880 acres on the shores of Webster Reservoir. Webster State Park also offers a 5,750-acre wildlife area that is home to white-tailed deer, pheasants, quail, waterfowl, wild turkey and numerous songbirds. In addition, Webster Lake has 3,800-acres of surface water for boating, fishing, water skiing, windsurfing and more. Campers can choose from 72 utility campsites and more than 100 primitive campsites. Besides boating and fishing, visitors will find swimming beaches, a sand volleyball court, horse shoe pits, playgrounds, and a hiking trail. The newest addition to Webster State Park is a two-bedroom cabin that accommodates six people. Five boat ramp lanes and three courtesy docks offer boaters ample launching facilities.
