We just returned from a weekend trip at Inks Lake. We got there after 4pm and the park was nearly full so we didn't have many sites to choose from. We ended up at site 250 which worked out ok because it was the rv site closest to the trail leading to Devil's sinkhole, which is where our kids ended... More

We just spent 4 nights and 5 days tent camping and did not want to leave. We arrived on a Sunday and people were packing up and getting ready to leave and the restrooms were fairly dirty but that is to be expected. They didn't show up to clean them until Monday morning, I thought it would have been done... More

I really like this lake for all the things to do. We camped in a tent and it seemed that we were on top of one another. Not much privacy. We were in site 219 which had water and electric y. We were in the shade, but not much of it. The bathrooms were clean, but not well lit. We... More

We just stopped by for a day visit with a little hiking. Some nice scenic areas. There are a lot of camping spaces and restroom facilities. I think this park could get very busy at times. The devils swimming hole looked fun.

Camped two nights on the banks of Ink Lake. Outstanding camp site for my small RV. Nice hiking trails, bike friendly roads, and lake access for all activities: swimming, fishing, kayaking... Only negative was that restrooms, although rather modern, we're not cleaned regularly.

We have camped here before & loved it. This time we camped for a couple of nights & then moved over to a cabin. They have lots of great camping site, with a lot of the on the lake. The lake is great for swimming, boating, kayaking, fishing or whatever you like to do. Devil's waterhole is a must when... More

My daughter and I spent some time swimming and cliff diving at the devils waterhole in inks lake state park - lots of fun and we felt perfectly safe jumping as long as you jump as far out from the cliffs as possible. What ended our day? A water snake of unknown type came calling and chased everyone out and... More

We have camped at Inks Lake State Park for many years and are never disappointed. The camp sites are well situated being far enough apart where you have privacy. The bathroom and shower facilities are always clean. In recent years they have added some shower rooms that are perfect for families. We can take our grandson to the showers and... More
