One of the nicest state parks in the area. The park is well maintained and offers a variety of activities for all ages. On the night we arrived, the park host were providing an escort to the sites so folks could locate their site without issue. We camped at Inks Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

The site was nice and relatively level, close to the water so canoeing and kayaking was very convenient. The lake was easy to paddle, well protected so no wind to deal with. Very close to bathhouse, which had nice clean showers with hot water. No soap or paper towels provided for day use and air dryer didn't work.

We stayed Sunday through Thursday nights and it was quiet and very restful. We camped at Inks Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Close to Marble Falls and Longhorn Caverns. The pie at Bluebonnet Cafe in Marble Falls is worth the trip!

Nice but crowded park. The weekend we visited most sites were taken by tent campers with children. The park rangers roamed the park regularly and kept everything running smoothly. The ranger station closed early the night we arrived, so we need to registered the next morning before 9 AM. The sites were close together, but not on top of each other. A lot of the larger level sites were taken by tenters, so make sure arrive early if you have a large rig or you want a waterfront site. The sites ranged from un-level to level, shady to full sun, waterfront to inland. This is a popular park, Saturday night sold out. Even with the full park, the park did not get noisy. We saw several deer and geese. We will definitely return. We camped at Inks Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Stop by Grand Central Café in Kingsland for a great meal. There is also and small HEB in Kingsland for any missing food items

This is a beautiful park with great facilities and lots to do. There is camping, backpacking, hiking, geocaching, swimming, boating, water skiing, scuba diving and fishing. Most campsites have good spacing from neighbors and some shade. There is lots of interesting geology. There is a food trailer and grocery store, as well as canoe, kayak, and pedal boat rentals. Campsites are in good shape and close to the water. It is a very popular park, so reservations are recommended for weekends and holidays. And make sure you know and follow all the rules, or the park police and/or host will be all over you! We camped at Inks Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very large park with almost 350 spots. Many are lakeside and almost all of the others have a water view. Many sites are shaded. Roads and parking pads are paved. Parking pad mostly level. Electric power is stable. It is very dry due to drought conditions and only propane grills (no charcoal) were allowed while I there. Fully stocked park store. Paddle boards and kayaks available for rent. Fishing pier. Wading area allows fly fishing. Strong Verizon signal. We camped at Inks Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

A well managed and clean park with friendly and helpful staff. Be sure to drive into the RV site area and make sure you get a site that is fairly level. Our pull through site was way out of level so we had to go back to the office and get one near it. Great view of the lake from almost any site. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Inks Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

This state park is mostly campground. There are some trails around the entrance station where you might avoid the crowd, but for the most part you will always be within sight of people. Since Texas state parks take reservations but not sites, you are in the unknown with regard to what site you will get, so it was annoying being told by the entrance station attendant to pick a site from those available, sight unseen. We picked one, drove in, did not like the site, went back, and picked another. I aked if they had pictures of each site, and the answer was "no". Summary: Check in is cumbersome. Campsites are a narrow strip of asphalt, with a relatively spacious area to spread out in. Sites on the lake side of the road are very open with trees, sometimes open with no trees, and little shrubbery to separate sites. On the non lake side, it appeared campsites had some vegetation separating sites. our site, #81, was superb for birdwatching. Hookups were perfect. Site was sloped, but easily leveled. C Spire phone service was 4 bar 3G. OVer-the-air was terrible with only 3 channels received. Bicycling was okay, running along with traffic on the main park road and through loops. We rented a canoe for $15 per hour, and it was nice out on the lake. Camp store was pricey. Star gazing event was $4 per person, but we did not attend since we already have a a telescope. The best part of being here was the bird life and wildflowers. Roadrunners rule! Cuckoos, vireos, painted buntings, numerous doves, and screech owls were constantly in the campsite. We would camp here again, and try to get site #81 because of the shade, brush, birds, and lizards. We camped at Inks Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed again at Ink Lake state park and had a great time. The park is beautiful and the staff very helpful. I wish they would add more 50 amp sites and sewer service for longer stays. The staff is friendly. We camped at Inks Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

$22 per night was for a 50-amp electric and water site. A daily entrance fee is also charged unless you have a $70 Texas State Parks Pass, which is good to cover entry fee to all state parks for one year. There are several campgrounds located within the heavily treed park that offer everything from back country camping to water/electric sites on semi-level asphalt pads. The site itself is dirt with a concrete pad for the picnic table. Each site does have a fire ring and some have a BBQ grill as well. The park is located one hour NW of Austin and one hour N of San Antonio. If you like hiking there are 7.5 miles of trails. Fishing/boating is available on Inks Lake. Spacing between the sites is generous. We received four bars 4G on our AT&T cell phone. We used our Millenicom jetpack as a Wi-Fi hotspot (there is Wi-Fi throughout the park but it was very weak at our site) and it worked very well. We received only one over-the-air TV station. We camped at Inks Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

The park maps here seem to show camp sites near the bathhouse, but watch out -- the baths are up hills that are about 3 blocks or more away. It's a nice lake with a fishing pier, and no fishing license is required in TX state parks. The sites are almost level, and do have trees and some grass. The restrooms are clean, but they have no soap or paper towels. We camped at Inks Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here many times and we will be back again and again. Big park with very big sites - most are. We always try to get one of the many lakefront spots as we have kayaks which makes it very convenient for us. Some of the restrooms are in need of a makeover, but most are good. My only complaint (which applies to all Texas state parks) is that you cannot reserve a particular site - it's first come first served in the day you are to arrive.

This park is really nice. The sites are spaced well apart and are clean. We stayed in site 289 which was right on the lake. We just left our kayaks at the shore and went paddling many times. Our Labrador Retriever loved playing in the water although he was supposed to be on a 6' leash. Because we were here during the week no one came around to make us leash him and he played freely in the water. We were also on a "no wake" zone so kayaking was very enjoyable. We paddled down to Devils Watering Hole and saw many turtles resting on rocks and one mother goose sitting on her eggs. We were here for 5 nights. The Texas Parks Pass paid for itself with this stay. Nice place. We camped at Inks Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a large, meandering, park with lots of trees where you might want to ask to see sites before taking one. Our assigned site on the lake was occupied by someone else, which was okay because it was very unlevel and we wouldn’t have been able to back into it anyway. The sites away from the lake front are more spacious, easier to access, and still very attractive. Staff were friendly enough, although obviously very busy. All in all, a nice enough place to stay. We camped at Inks Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

July 4th week, so we expected it to be crowded, and it was. Very little shade, so the a/c ran non stop, which is not usually an issue in most RV parks. The voltage ran a little low at Inks Lake, causing our breaker to blow frequently and the a/c to cut off. We camp at a lot of state parks and Texas frequently makes appeals for financial help, due to cuts in state funding. I want to give a tip, if you want people to spend money in your park to save your jobs, you need to be friendly to them. The ladies at the state park store got the award for "most rude". A visitor at our site got a written warning for not having paid to get in, yet her receipt/tag was taped to her windshield. The speed limit was 15, yet people drove by our site like it was a race track, including employees in marked state vehicles. We won't be back. We camped at Inks Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
