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.

We visited Longhorn Cavern State Park and decided to visit Inkslake as well. Once in the park, we decided on visiting Devil's Waterhole because the name was sooo intriguing. Once there, we had a blast getting in the water and jumping off the 30-40ft cliff wall. My 9 yr old had a blast and joined in on the wall diving.... More

We camped at Inks Lake State Park this past weekend. There was so much to see and do! There were park sponsored programs every day. We viewed the night sky through a telescope and actually saw the rings of Saturn. We swam in Devil's Hole, jumped from the cliff, sat in the waterfalls, hiked and climbed the rocks, looked for...

Inks Lake is a very scenic state park. There is not much hiking to do, but the park is huge and you can walk around the entire park or go beyond the rocks over in the area by the Devil’s Water hole. This was our first time staying in a cabin and it was not too bad. It is a... More

This is definitely a campers' park - it seems like the park was made just to accommodate camp sites. There are very few trails, and not really anything else to do here.
