    Sailing is very popular on this lake. There are motor boats too, but definitely a lot of sail boats. They also teach sailing on this lake.

    Bongo's Bistro is near the town square where highways 32 and 39 meet. I was surprised that a town this size would have such a fine restaurant. The sandwiches and steaks there are excellent and the prices reasonable. That is VT member TYCOON007 in the picture. He and I went to eat at Bongo's.

    This diner is between the Lake Stockton Inn and Holliday Motel. I have gotten up early before starting my work at the hotel and gone here for coffee, biscuits, and gravy. They make a wonderful biscuits and gravy that only costs a little but will stick to your ribs all day.

    The best deal for your buck, Jessie's Old Place has the best deals on packaged liquor/beer in the area. With bait, snacks, cold beer, ice and a fun loving famliy waiting to hear your tales, stop by just to say hi, they'd love to see you.

    What to buy: It's all good there at Jessie's. And what's even better the rumor is they are opening their second store.

    What to pay: Only you are in control of your wallet, but with their selection, remember to drink in moderation.

    On highway 32 there are signs like this. Local civic groups and businesses adopt stretches of highway and take responsibility for picking up all the trash along side of the roads there.

    Woods is the only grocery store for about 25 miles in any direction. For that reason they charge higher prices. I found prices at the Walmart in Bolivar to be much lower. To save money I suggest you buy groceries and take them with you to Stockton. I also found dairy products past the expiration date both times I went to Woods.

    Don't look for this sign.

    Hammons Pantry is located 4 blocks north of the main square. It is the show room and visitor center for Hammons Products Company. Stockton is the Black Walnut Capital of the world. At Hammons you can buy black walnut candies and learn about the harvesting and production. I learned that ground black walnut hulls are used when working on jet engines. You should try some of the free samples. I had some and they were sooooo good. You can find out more at the company web sites... www.hammonspantry.com or www.black-walnuts.com. They even gave me a small pamphlet with black walnut recipes in it there.

Stockton Favorites

  • by ariesgirl Written Apr 24, 2003

    Favorite thing: The people. Then the lake, fishing, hunting and just a great place to relax and have fun. It's a slow pace here in Stockton and we love that. It's downhome charm and affordable place to live.

    Fondest memory: For me it was my children's first home. And as they say if you don't like the weather wait a day and see.
