Stokken is a former municipality in Aust-Agder county, Norway. It is located in the present-day municipality of Arendal in the Sørlandet region. The administrative centre of the municipality was the village of Eydehavn.


Stokken was part of the municipality of Austre Moland since its establishment on 1 January 1838 (see formannskapsdistrikt). On 1 July 1919, Austre Moland was divided into two separate municipalities: Stokken (population: 1,683) and Austre Moland (population: 1,289).

On 1 January 1962, a merger took place between Stokken, Austre Moland, Flosta, as well as the Strengereid district in Tvedestrand. This created the new municipality of Moland. Before the merger, Stokken had a population of 2,783. On 1 January 1992, the municipality of Moland (including the area of Stokken) was merged into the neighboring municipality of Arendal.[1]
