  • A great place for campaign, hiking, fishing, boat riding. Our family loved spending time here. Make your reservations a head of time. Make sure you pack for your campaign trip well. Stores are a bit f...  more »
  • This is definitely a family friendly and bustling place. There were people everywhere (on a weekday). Nevertheless, it still offered the "state park" ambiance. We hiked to the bird house lodge and it ...  more »
  • This was a beautiful place! Devil's hole was super fun and the hike to get there was easy. The people were nice and there were plenty of restroom spots along the drive. We will definitely be back!  more »

  • 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!
  • My girlfriend and I spent the weekend camping and hiking Inks Lake. I had always heard good things about Inks Lake for fishing, but never much about the hiking. But we decided to give it a try... and we were not disappointed. Yes, the hikes are on the short side but their is a lot of good hills and great views and absolutely stunning landscape (we went just after the rainy season). The bird blind was amazing to hang out in.
  • Beautiful park, we stayed in the cabins and it was nice 👍🏻 bathrooms were good, I've seen cleaner at a state park but that's okay. Trails were awesome. Devils waterhole wasn't what I was expecting but we had a great time anyways. Don't sit in the water over by the small waterfall, we stood up with small leaches all over our bodies. Tiny ones though so we just brushed them off. Overall good stay!
  • This is a beautiful park! It's an easy hour and 15 minute drive from Austin, the campsites are easily accessible; have a picnic table, fire pit, and hang hook; and many are right on the lake. The hiking trails offer lovely views and numerous opportunities to scramble around or lunch on the iconic red rocks of the area. The restrooms are clean and heated, which was great during winter camping, but bring your own soap. Longhorn caverns is a 10 minute trip down the road. I keep coming back here and whether I hike or just chill at the campsite, it's always a great time.
