My Fiancé and I ended up going here on a whim & loved it. We kayaked for a few hours & hiked to get some views of the bluebonnets. Such a fun experience, we will definitely be going back. A lot of people were camping at the time because we went during spring break, but even with all the people it didn’t seem too crowded. The staff was friendly and helpful!
One of the nicest SP in Texas. Great views and the bluebonnets are abundant in spring
I stayed at Inks Lake during May of 2017 while on Geology Field Camp. We were camped away from the main campsite in a more secluded section, and it couldn't have been a better spot. The sites were well spread out despite there being so many of them, and some of them sat right on the lake. The amenities are top-notch, with large bathrooms and showers close to the campsites. There are some nice swimming spots and an area to hike around that shows off the amazing geology. A great spot to bring the kids.
An hour and a half away from Austin, we found Inks Lake to be a quiet and relaxing camp area away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
There are several sites set up across the state park. The more modern RV campgrounds nearest the designated safe swimming areas. And the more remote camp zones on the other side of the main entrance. We chose the more remote area, which was perfect! We were close to the water, it was dark and quiet, and the campsites are more spread out. We still had access to some very nice bathrooms a short walk away.
Overall, close to civilization, yet far enough to enjoy nature.
The facilities at this park have recently been upgraded and they are very nice. A hot shower in cooler temperature was most welcome. We hiked around 4.5 miles, nothing too challenging but very Nice views of the lake. This was our third trip to this park, we love it.
My wife and kids just spent the past 3 days at Inks Lake and really enjoyed our time there. We took our 6 and 4 year old’s hiking on some of the trails they offer, and had a blast. They offered a daypack filled with pencils and sketch pads and activity books for my kids and added another fun thing to do on our hike. The employees at the general store are incredibly nice and happy to help out. We look forward to going back and trying out the more primitive camp sites they offer.
GREAT PARK, HAS A MARINA, GREAT LAKE TO KAYAK, WONDERFUL STORE. SITES ARE CLEAN BUT A BIT CHALLENGING TO BACK INTO, INCLINE AND COULD BE BIGGER. NO PULL THROUGHS. GREAT FOR TENTING ALSO.
Loved this park however it’s huge and crowded. Lots of activities for boaters and fisherman. Many activities for hiking and swimming too.
This is the perfect campground for families! It offers canoeing, fishing, swimming, paddle boards. The deer come right up to you and very friendly! Hiking trails are easy and very scenic. Longhorn caverns is close by to visit and take a cave tour, as well as devils swimming hole, and Perissos winery. So there’s something for everyone!
Camp Store is great!!
You can rent canoes for a price.
Fishing poles are free to rent.
Bring your own firewood but if you don’t then there is a camp store to purchase what you need.
Staff is helpful and you can find them patrolling the area on golf carts.
A short hike to the waterfalls.
Watering hole is refreshing and clean. There is a cliff to jump into the water!! Bring an inner tube to float in the river. Also bring water shoes as the bottom of river is slippery mud. There are rocks around so be careful not to slip!
