Inks Lake State Park
Inks Lake State Park encompasses pretty much all of the eastern shore of Inks Lake ensuring plenty of unspoiled shoreline to be enjoyed from land or water.
This is one of the larger state parks with a couple hundred mixed camp sites from 50 amp water/electric to hike in primitive, with walk in electrics for tenters that like a few extra amenities, (The ‘walk-in’ part is 100 yards at most.) and back in water only sites. If you don’t have an RV or tent there’s also cabins available as well as a couple fishing piers, a boat ramp, a camp store and kayak/canoe rental and even a fishing tackle loaner program.
Inks Lake is one of those human-sized lakes that is doable by the casual canoeist or kayaker. If that’s not your thing then there’s lots of hiking trails, a few miles worth of shoreline fishing and, of course, the swimming.
Engines are allowed on the lake so I imagine it can get quite ‘active’ on the weekend and this is a popular destination so reservations might be in order during peak seasons.
The one star deduction is because this is a ‘family’ style park that is best enjoyed during the school week by those looking for quiet and solitude, but then that’s just me.
This is one of our favorite parks for short trips from home.
We are preparing to start motorhoming fulltime in the near future and this park is being considered as our winter location. The only negative to this would be the lack of sewer connection.
The WiFi service has greatly improved since our last visit and seemed to be faster than our DSL at home.
We stayed three nights here in our motorhome. This is a very large, nice park on the Colorado River. Most sites are easy to back into although they also have several pull through sites. We had a back in site with the lake just a few steps from our door. And the showers, restrooms and park store was only a short distance away. The fishing was excellent when we were there.
WiFi was available but was "on again, off again" but I am anxious to return and try it with my new booster setup which has really improved performance in other places. We were able to receive several TV stations out of Austin with our standard rooftop attenna.
