            MOTEL ROOMS are no longer available.       



We love animals and try to do right by them and our guests.  Well behaved animals are welcome, but should be on a leash when on the Happy O's property and should not be unattended at any time.   If you bring your pets to the lake, please take them with you to the lake so they can enjoy the adventure with you.  Thank you for understanding. 

Jim and Mary  
The Happy O's Sportsman's Resort at Stockton Lake was formerly known as the Cedar Oak Lodge. We are independently owned and operated, and eager to serve you.  Our goal is to maintain a family friendly environment and to make your stay a  comfortable and enjoyable one. The hotel is surrounded by wooded Corp of Engineers property. We are  adjacent to 37 beautiful acres with a pond, a putting green and plenty of ground for a relaxing walk or brisk hike.  

The hotel property was originally built in the 1970's when Lake Stockton was first constructed.  This charming small town atmosphere is just the ticket for those wanting a break from the hustle of the city.  Come and watch the beautiful sunsets, sparkling water and star filled skies.

We are located south of Kansas City, just off of highway 71. We are just 15 minutes from
downtown Stockton. You will find us on H Road, just off highway 39.

Preferred payment: cash or check.
