  • A group of friends and I arrived at Inks lake around 8 PM. We noticed that the park was somewhat small, extremely quiet, and the camp sites were too close together. After an hour of being there, we we...  more »

  • I loved camping right on the lake. There were great hikes nearby and within driving distance. Renting a canoe, taking it over to Devil's Waterhole, and hiking around from our landing point was a highlight. The only downside was a dance party being held at the sailing camp/resort across the lake. They shut down at 9:45, but it was hard for my kids to sleep before then. It was only one night, Thursday night. Overall, can't wait to go back!
  • Great camping in the cooler months. Paddling is always awesome. Hikes a enjoyable for central Texas and suitable to small kids if you are set up to carry them when tired. Of Course the Devil's Waterhole is refreshing and the cliffs are fun to jump from.
  • Great place for camping/hiking & water adventure. Offers great lake for kayaking one can rent from park office.Devils water hole is must visit if you wanna get some adrenaline rush jumping off the cliff. If you are birder you would love the place. Check with park staff for more details, there is a bird blind just off the park.
  • This was my first time camping here. I absolutely fell in love with it! Our campsite was clean, beautiful, and bigger than I expected. We had a site right on the water, perfect for my husband and I to pitch a tent. We were able to purchase decent firewood from the camp store, and had a great time. The entire Park was clean, including the bathrooms! And the staffing here is phenomenal! We were shown nothing but absolute kindness for our entire stay. The fishing pier is small, but works. And the views are breathtaking. Anyone with a love of camping or photography or kayaking should definitely check out this state park! They also sell Texas park passes, which I believe are absolutely worth the price, if you love to hike or go camping. Inks Lake helped me find new things to love about Texas. I can't say enough good things about it! We'll definitely be back!
  • Small lake, devil's hole fun to jump from. Picnic areas are cleared out with some shady trees. Needs a beach area to enter the water. There is too much brush to get in the water. Afraid of snakes looming in the brush to access water.
