  • This is one of Texas best state parks, ranking in the top 10%. Lake is great, water seems clean and clear for the most part. It has a nice trail system with small elevation gains and drops surrounding the lake with beautiful granite outcroppings combined with succulents. The camping area has something to be desired very little privacy between the camping spaces, be it tent camping or RV glamping, privacy is at a minimum to none. The bathrooms have been rebuilt and are 100% better than they used to be. The cabins are pretty small (bunk beds), they do offer AC relief during the hot summers. Like I said, this is a campground which is rated high in Texas and is one of our favorites for day use, being so close to Austin.
  • Beautiful location! My Husband and I love going here! My Husband has stayed in one of the huts overnight, and thoroughly enjoyed the quite atmosphere. We've rented kayaks here, as well as a paddle boat - very easy to rent out, with friendly and helpful staff. So much to see and do, with vary degrees of difficulty.
  • Amazing Park, so beautiful and peaceful. It was really quiet and gorgeous! Great trails and amazing kayaking experience. My cabin was extra clean, the staff literally takes 30 minutes disinfecting each cabin. So beautiful!! Staff was awesome and friendly, park police there to help, great for families!!
  • Gorgeous park! Some of the hiking trails are rocky with exposed granite outcroppings and can be uneven. I would recommend wearing boots. The views of the lake from multiple locations are amazing! Pets must be on a leash. Great spot for birding! One of the best state parks in Texas!
  • Come here for the water but stay for the hiking. Devil’s Swimming hole and Inks Lake itself is the attraction. Swimming, fishing, kayaking and paddle boarding are all options. The hiking is totally under rated. Great trails with elevation and views. Camping and boat ramp also offered. Advance reservations recommended.
