Inks Lake State Park is a place we've been for day trips and camping several times. We started going in February of this year. My husband and I were scouting for an anniversary getaway. We took our then 3 year old. She loves it! There's hiking, fishing (you can borrow gear if needed), and different activities with the park rangers.... More

Love this lake! We have been going to Inks Lake for years. Our family says this is a must. Get a Texas State Park Pass because it is a great value for you and also helps the Texas State Parks. The staff is always friendly and super helpful. You can go for the day or stay 2 weeks and not... More

This is a beautiful park and fully loaded with hearty souls ready to venture off the cliffs. More power to them I say. The lake is large and there are many nice campsites. The kids really enjoyed their time flying off the cliffs but the old (relative) man decided it was in his best interest to be a spectator and... More

We went to dive and swim in the park. There were a good amount of people. I'd bring a tube next time and water shoes. Many people jumped from the cliffs including my kids.

Finally got to visit this park and it was beautiful! We went for the day so I can't comment on the accommodations, but the campgrounds look nice. Also saw that they have cabins which look to have window units. The park store has all kinds of stuff and that is also where you rent canoes, kayaks, and paddle boats. We... More

One of the best state parks i have visited in Texas. Beautiful lake, great swimming areas, great options for parking and camping. Amazingly the store allows you to hire fishing poles for free which was great because we forgot to bring our fishing equipment. Lots of hiking and trails as well, inexpensive to hire kayaks and paddle boats. And the... More

There were activities scheduled for the whole family from nature hikes to fishing lessons, all free. We camp here every year.from chicken rock where only the brave eill jump... More

Most visitors come with their family, and/or extended family, towing travel trailers. The lake is roomy enough for swimming, boating, kayaking, or just swimming. The brave venture to Devil's Hole and dive from 15' or 40' cliffs. Book early to get a lakeside spot. Scope it out first because our slot 255 was slanted toward the shore and it was... More

Been camping here about once a year for decades.. park is always well maintained and clean. Still can't stand the new style bathrooms, taking a shower in them is like taking a shower in a sauna, but at least it is there. Hot water available if you need or want it. We attended a kids event put on for free... More
