This is a great state park. The park has tent sites RV sites or you can rent a cabin. Cabins have air conditioners but no heat. Restrooms / showers are a short walk away. Lots of outdoor activities for the whole family.

We have been coming to the Inks Lake state park for 20+ years and it has become our personal favorites. Inks Lake is a constant-level lake so it never varies and has some of the best photo ops in the hill country. Nice sites throughout the park, many with a gorgeous view right on the lake. As most state parks,... More

Ink's Lake has, over many years, become the place for our family to plan several tent camp outs during the year. The staff and Hosts are always polite and helpful. Bathrooms and showers are plentiful and clean. Tent sites are roomy with fire pit and grill, easy water access at sites w/water. A number of sites are close to the... More

We really enjoyed our recent trip and had a great campsite with "beach" access. Ducks visited us every day, there were deer, and other wildlife. We enjoyed all of the hiking. We have swum in the Devil's Sinkhole area before, but this trip was too cold for swimming.

This one of Texas State Parks that everyone should visit. Beautiful views of the hill country, lake levels are always good with swimming and fishing in the top 10 of all lakes. Clean well maintained and always friendly staff. Big camp sites and easy to back a RV of travel trailer into.

My wife and I tent camped for 5 days at site 349 which has a water spigot, a picnic table, lots of shade, and a fire ring. Getting a site with water or water & electricity both, is the only way to be near the lake. The primitive camp sites are the farthest from the lake & you have to... More

This was my second visit to Inks Lake State Park. The lake views are fabulous. I don't have small children but there are play areas for children. They rent small cinder block cabins that are right on the lake, tent sites, or pads for rv's. So, much to do here. Take a hike across granite mounds with great overlooks, rent... More

Many years ago we discovered this wonderful Texas state camping park and have returned often. Reservations are required to be assured of a choice site.. any site at times. We often drop in and sometimes a cancellation opens a site. The routine to stay without a reservation, even for another night, begins at the office 'before' 8am when the line... More

We just returned from a weekend trip at Inks Lake. We got there after 4pm and the park was nearly full so we didn't have many sites to choose from. We ended up at site 250 which worked out ok because it was the rv site closest to the trail leading to Devil's sinkhole, which is where our kids ended... More

We just spent 4 nights and 5 days tent camping and did not want to leave. We arrived on a Sunday and people were packing up and getting ready to leave and the restrooms were fairly dirty but that is to be expected. They didn't show up to clean them until Monday morning, I thought it would have been done... More
