New bathroom construction

Had a great time, but when we went spring of 2018 there was a lot of construction for new bathrooms. I would assume the new bathrooms are complete now and very nice!


This state park, although not too big was great! There’s lots to do and see. Most importantly the staff here is great! They are very helpful and happy to be. The drive up campsites are awesome and come with two grills; one low to the ground for firewood and another for charcoal. There’s a park store with lots of things in case you forgot something, and the bathroom/showers are super clean! Highly recommend!

The hiking trails are wonderful and easy to follow, with a few challenging ones. But the place has it all! Canoes, paddle boats, kayaks, fishing,swimming. Great park for beginner or amateur campers. As well as seasoned ones looking to relax.

Great place all year round!

My favorite place in the world. I've been camping there since before I can remember.

Absolutely gorgeous!

Very clean and well maintained grounds and facilities. Wherever you are in the park there are showers and restrooms nearby. Awesome cliffs to jump off of. Friendly and helpful park rangers/staff.

Great for a Texas SP!

This campground has lots to do - its best feature. As usual, sites are cramped, but there is a lovely lake and hiking.

So many things to enjoy!

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

A Beautiful and Relaxing Campsite

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.

A Waterfront Camp Heaven

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.

Inks Lake State Park November 2018

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.
