Inks Lake is a great state park, with swimming areas, "cabins" (cinder block rooms, but with all important a/c for summer); playgrounds for the kids, and good camping spots... many very close to water. My only complaint is that the water in a small inlet near the camp spots (and near cabins), was too yucky to swim in.... wish it... More

I always enjoy anywhere you can observe the deer up close. The road here meanders through the park, the different camping areas are separated and the lake has always been clear when we've been there. Toward Marble Falls, the caverns are great for the Grand-kids and friends to ramble through.

Beautiful location Almost every site has trees and is convenient to a shower/bathroom installation. No pull through sites. Lack of sewer hook up requires a trip to the dump station every few days. Arrive in daylight if at all possible. It's very easy to get lost in the campground and may of the back-in sites have odd angles and trees... More

I went here during the week in September. I had a perfect site right on the water. Did a little kayaking and a lot of hiking around the lake. Very friendly staff at concession store. They have cabins as well. I tent camped. It was a wonderful way to get away from the city for a few days. I am... More

Camped here Thanksgiving Weekend and, wow! What a beautiful park! Fall colors, water views almost everywhere. Nice hiking too! Weather was not great, but we still enjoyed being here. Absolutely must go back in summer. No full hookups and we forgot out grey water tote, so we had to use the public showers. They were fine, with one complaint: they... More

Loved this trip to Inks. We went during the week and found a beautiful tent spot right on the lake. Our second night the temp really dropped, so on our final night we switched to a cabin. The staff was super friendly and the experience was very restful. Our only caution would be around the restroom and shower facilities -... More

We love to come here to canoe and hike. We bring our out-of-town guests to appreciate the beauty of the Hill Country. It is especially nice because it is a constant level lake and you are sure to be able to enjoy the lake. The friendliness of the volunteer staff in the store is great too!

We're here for four nights, with three other RVers from Bandera. Our spaces are directly on the lake, awesome sunset views. Amazing that checking in on a Sunday that they are turning away guests because they are full. Looking forward to the next three days of projected sunny and 70+ weather, hiking and canoeing. We WILL be back.

October is a great time to visit this park, especially during the week. It was very quiet and there were not many other RV's in the park. We brought our kayak and had a great time on the lake and enjoyed our lakeside spot back in the cove. Spot 43 is really nice with a large Post Oak for shade.
