We hit the wildflowers just right and the park is beautiful. The HQ staff were very helpful. The green and blue trails were very picturesque.

This is a beautiful Texas Hill Country park with a flowing creek with waterfalls and some pretty hiking trails. The little cabins had cold air conditioners and double bunk beds with a BBQ pit just outside. Great weekend get-away.

Upon arrival the Staff was very helpful. We got directions to the park store, rented a canoe, and did a bit of shopping. We also ordered some lunch at a catfish and snow cone stand near the store. It was delicious! While eating lunch there were tons of birds to watch. The car windows were open, and a Cardinal was... More

Inks Lake State Park is a gem. It is a perfect blend of quiet hiking and family-oriented water fun (paddle boats, canoes, kayaks for rent, fishing from a pier). We camped in April and wildflowers were everywhere. The staff was friendly. The campsite were clean and had a little space around them. The camp store had everything we forgot except... More

Love to hike the pink granite hills at this park. We prefer the older quiet side to the more open side with all the concessions.

It is a very nice state park. This is the first time we had been there. There were lots of nice campsites and some small cabins available to rent. The cabins appeared to have a set of bunk beds and a table with two chairs in a small area. There are also some picnic areas for day visitors. There is... More

Inks Lake SP is a great park to visit for the day or camp overnight. The park is very clean and the views all around are very nice. They have a store inside the park that has drinks, food, fishing supplies, kayak/canoe rentals, etc. It's a great place for family and can be a good place to just camp out... More
