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.

This park has so many things to do! We camped out there in the primitive camping area which was not too shabby, we went kayaking, there's a free fishing gear loaner program. We went swimming at the devil's waterhole which has a pretty daunting rock you can jump off of into the water. Also a great place to just stick... More

The scenery is amazing. The customer service was very welcoming. I felt very safe with all the park rangers driving around. At night it is not very well lit so it made it hard walking to and from the bathrooms with a 4 year old.

It's a nice Hill Country Park, the Devil's Swimming Hole is scenic. Inks Lake is also nice, and provides all sorts of watersports.There is a small café on site, I had planned to eat breakfast there, then found it closed, its only open peak season and weekends so that was a bit of a surprise. They have a really well... More

3 nights was a good amount of time. We managed to do two hikes (small 2-4 miles), kayak the lake (we had our own but rentals available at the camp store), fish, cliff jump at Devils Waterhole and explore up the river. We were tent camping and the sites along the shore were spacious. Hubby saw two water moccasins on... More

I have a state pass so I visit a lot of the parks here in Texas. Inks is one of my very favorites. The hiking trails are well marked and can range from an easy walk to a challenging vertical hike. You can rent kayaks and enjoy a paddle out on the lake. You can paddle up to the small... More
