Inks Lake was one of the places recommended to see the Blue Bonnets. This year they weren't the best in the Hill Country and the Ranger advised us of that before we paid the entrance fee. We were impressed with his integrity and honesty.

Well worth the $6 day use entry fee! Well kept and cared for park, campground and lake. We thoroughly enjoyed the two hours we spent kayaking on the cool and serene lake. Lots of campers and tents but the lake was surprisingly uncrowded. Quiet Sunday...More

Get there early to save your spot to camp. Waterfront pads are limited and usually you will need to reserve months in advance for weekends. Join the Texas State Parks pass and save money on your stay.

Great park for our group of students. We have visited the park two years in a row now, and have loved it both times. Great hiking trails and the lake is great for swimming, canoeing, and kayaking!

A bit of everything for everyone. A family treasure. Great for day use or for camping. The shelters are very nice for families.

There are MANY fantastic campsites that are along Inks Lake shoreline. These campsites face northwest so the sunsets are just beautiful. Many have their picnic tables and campfire sites right next to the lake. The restrooms that are open are very nice and clean but...More

I love this park, and was surprised to see that they have so many wildflowers. They offer a guided wildflower hike every Friday and Saturday in April. As for the hiking trails, they are more strenuous than the "easy" classification would suggest. We hiked the...More
