We were only there for a couple hours but loved it. Hope to return one day for a camping trip. It is a beautiful park with a gorgeous scenic drive leading to it.

Awesome park had lots of wild life ,from mice being chased by snakes to deer sniffing your tent. Good swimming friendly help..just all around good experience. Lots of boulders and stone so need padding for sleeping.

Texas State Parks are generally well maintained, and this one is no exception. We like that the Park Rangers ensure that park rules are followed, it reduces the chance of a ruined vacation by rowdy neighbors. Although the water-side campsites are hard to come by, there is still plenty of access to water. We enjoy swimming, hiking (be sure to... More

We took an afternoon to visit the lake while staying on Lake Buchanan for the weekend. Inks Lake is a much better option. Although Inks Lake is smaller, it stays the same water level all the time, so it has avoided the droughts. Also, there are several trails with different degrees of terrain, so there is more variety. Definitely worth... More

We rented a 32' travel trailer and had no problem driving through the park or backing into our camping spot. We stayed at campsite 251 and that was the perfect place for us. We had 4 adults, 4 kids and 5 dogs. We were close to the restrooms/showers and close to the trail that leads to Devil's Waterhole. We were... More

I attended star parties at this park on two different nights. The park has numerous camping areas, rv areas, and small cabins, but did not use any. The lake level was good and the place was virtually full and this was mid week! The park is not real large, but is well maintained and has a lot to offer. It... More

We had a great Boy Scout campout at Inks Lake State Park. Unfortunately we were only there for 2 nights, so I would like to go back with the family sometime. It is a beautiful place and close to Longhorn Caverns. Bathrooms were pretty standard for a state park.

Let me just start out saying- I'm on a mission to visit/camp at all of TX state parks and this is about the 6th one we've been to in the past year. We went on a tues-thurs.....just to avoid weekend crowds. It is a large park- it was crowded but not to the point it was uncomfortable. The devil's waterhole... More

Being the first time that we were camping, we can only say that it was very enjoyable. Inks Lake SP is a really neat park and well kept. The park has a store that has almost everything you will need for camping. There are restrooms and showers available too.
