We went for two nights to camp in May and the park was beautiful filled with wild flowers. Our camping site was surrounded with yellow wild flowers, we had a picnic table and water faucet. The bathrooms were very clean too and they also had firewood for $5. I think this park is geared more for families who want to... More

Nice big rv spots on a pretty lake and access to the Devil's Waterhole. Gorgeous grounds, rocky and lush, wild flowers and lots of birds. Good walking trails and bike riding. Rentals for kyaks, boats, etc. No sewer hook up at sites but that's pretty normal at state parks. We really enjoyed camping here.

In spring there are wonderful, colorful wildflowers. Varied terrain including vista views of the lake. Hiking maps available in the office. HOWEVER, trails are not well marked so it is easy to go off course. The areas for hiking are relatively delimited so you can't get very lost, but it is still frustrating not to be able to follow the... More

Nice park. Little store is well stocked. Little hot and muggy lots of shade trees to help cool you. Lots of families camping. The mini cabins are nice.

We have stayed at Inks Lake in our Airstream several times, and take it for granted since it's only about an hour from Austin. While there, we enjoy kayaking, biking, exploring, and hiking. But when your camping, just being outside and enjoying a campfire in the evenings on a beautiful lake is enough for most....as I said, we take it... More

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.
