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

Awesome park we stayed on spots 228 & 229. Long drive from Dallas but worth it. We are going kayaking tomorrow. You will need to arrive very early to get by the water.

Get there early in the day to get a campsite next to the lake. Be sure and take a kayak to Devil's waterhole for some cliff diving. They have low cliffs for the kids and really high ones for the dare devils. Or just go and watch everyone else jump which is fun too.

Enjoyed our visit to Inks Lake. We rented a canoe and cruised across the lake to the Devil's Backbone. Seems to be the way to get there with young children. We jumped in the water for a quick swim. The rocks are slippery there so be careful. After canoeing we went over to the swimming area to cool off some... More

The constant level lake is a Hill Country oasis in Texas drought conditions. Water activities include swimming, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boats and of course boating and fishing. Devil's Waterhole attracts adventurers, who jump from Chicken Rock, which is balanced on a granite looking cliff, into the pool below. Geologist frequent the area to study the formations, and get a close... More

We've been coming to Inks every summer for years since the kids were little. These are some of their greatest memories as adults now. We're still coming but only us two in this season of 34+ blessed married years. Summers are wonderful in the beautiful lake and Fall is equally beautiful sitting by the campfire. Campsites and cabins, we've enjoyed... More

We were only there for a couple hours but loved it. Hope to return one day for a camping trip. It is a beautiful park with a gorgeous scenic drive leading to it.
