My husband and I were here last week and were amazed at the beauty of this area. The rock formations are stunning. If you are a rock hound you will love this place. Great for photographers too. We were disappointed in the access areas to the lake for fishing. When we arrived they said they gave us a lake access... More

Rented kayaks. Cost six dollars per person to get the park. Then 15 each for kayaks. Boys jumped off some cliffs in Devil's Waterfall. Water very mossy! Like Lake LBJ better. Fun day!

Spent two days at the day use area and we enjoyed it immensely. We walked back to Devils Hole. We swam, rented a paddle boat, and kayaks. This area of the lake is so peaceful! We were sure to get there early to get a spot with shade. Facilities were clean. Ready to go back with our rv!

We have been going to Inks Lake for years. Here is a summary of my thoughts on it: - very family oriented with lots of playground areas for the younger kids - young and old alike can enjoy the water by renting either a kayak, paddle boat, or a canoe - we found that the older folks in our group...

We went Thursday through Saturday prior to Labor Day. We stayed in campsite 44 which was directly on the water in the no wake area. The bathhouse was super close. The playground and park store were close too. It was not crowded Thursday but Friday night the park was full and Saturday was a zoo. It was Labor Day so... More

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.

Great park not much for hiking but the water is wonderful. I am in my 20s as were the friends with me we were fine drinking at our site but we also didn't get loud or crazy to cause problems. If you are my age or want a more peaceful setting DO NOT get the eletric sites do the water... More
