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

We were limited to what we could, due to the nonstop rain. We still managed to hike around 3 miles and had a blast. Love the rock formations and multiple elevation changes. Definitely will go back

This park is perfect. Tons of camping spots, cabins, boat rentals, hiking and so much more. The place is so clean and well maintained. There is a camp store in the park so you can pick up any essentials you may have forgotten. I would highly recommend a stop at this park, the views are wonderful.

This is a beautiful lake and we enjoyed the RV campsites in a previous visit. Well maintained, clean restrooms, and helpful "park hosts."

Our whole family loves this park. Not only is it visually stunning, the facilities are well-kept and clean. The hiking trails are also great. On occasion my husband and I will get a cabin mid week and almost have the park to ourselves if school is in session.

Behind Garner State Park, this is the second best place to visit as far as state parks go. Clean, safe, convenient, and absolutely wonderful. Once you stay, you will see what I mean! You Must Make Reservations Ahead of time. I can't stress this enough! We love this place. The lake here sent my wife into labor with our last... More

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
