I have been to lots of Texas Parks and this one is one of my favorites. Beautiful lake, super nice camping spots and lots to do. Canoe rentals, on site store, fishing docks, clean showers. Nice walking trails through scenic woods with wildlife. Not that far from the city of Kingsland on Lake LBJ for anything you may need. Beautiful... More

First, there is a lot of walking involved, so you need to be ready. My watch read 2.66 miles when we got back to the car, and we didn't even complete the entire loop to go behind the falls. A couple of other caveats: there are bees, and lots of them, especially around the Devil's Water Hole. Secondly, the paths... More

We all had a good stretch midday. Nice to share some nature with our family. Perfect weather and few other people. Good for the soul.

Perfect place for stargazing! We were lucky that the skies were so clear, we saw so many stars! Definitely worth taking the trip out there!

We come here every week and its so nice to come to a place that is quiet and we'll maintained. Everyone here parks ppl or the patrons are nice. The scenery is breathe taking and relaxing. Early morning you can watch the wildlife walk around to various campsites to sneak a peek at what's left over from the night before.... More

One HOT June day we piled into the car and picked out some road trip jams for drive through the Hill Country and a destination of fun and sun. The drive is easy as always and a quick 2 hours later we arrived. There are several hiking trails through out the park and they are different lengths and terrain so... More

This is one of my favorite parks. Great wide open places for the kids to play. The park was very clean and the sites are well maintained. There are fabulous hiking paths and water activities. This is a family friendly camping experience that should be experienced by all families.

Ink's Lake is amazing!! They have it all, camping, fishing, hiking, boating and swimming! We stayed in the electric/water sites even though we tent camp - it was a little noisy and crowded. We are going back in January and will stay in the water only sites. We hiked all trails (10miles with our dog). The hike was not too... More

We tent camped here. It is a beautiful park with deer, ducks, and geese. The park staff was very courteous, friendly and helpful. The campsites were clean and nice. We hiked to the bird blind and saw cardinals, mockingbirds, and some others we did not know. The waterfalls were flowing and gorgeous. Definitely recommend this park for camping, hiking, boating.

This is one of those places where you will not use your cellphone and just sit outside to feel the breeze. Places like these are hard to find and a must visit destination!
