A Day At Inks Lake State Park

Despite its size, the park has lots of ways to discover the wonders of nature as you cross creeks and walk over rocks more than a billion years old. You’ll find a plethora of wildlife viewing opportunities and places to connect to the outdoors on over 8 miles of trail.



Prepare for sun and heat. Wear sun screen,insect repellent and appropriate clothing/hiking shoes.


Your body quickly loses fluids when you’re on the trail. Bring a quart of water per hour of activity.


If possible,avoid exploring alone.Tell someone where you are going and when you plan to return.


The law requires that all children under age 13 wear one with adult supervision while boating.


Check forecasts before you leave and prepare for unexpected changes in the weather.

POTENTIALLY HARMFUL PLANTS AND ANIMALS LIVE HERE. You’ll see them more easily if you stay on trails. Do not approach wildlife!

Things to Do

Inks Lake State Park is great for a day trip or a weekend getaway. Because the lake’s level usually stays constant, you can play here year-round.

On land, you can camp, backpack, geocache, play volleyball, picnic, and observe nature. We have 9 miles of hiking trails through shady forests and across rocky hills. Hike Pecan Flats, a self-guided 3.3-mile trail that is perfect for the whole family, or stop by our bird blind.

Rent our group picnic pavilion for your next family reunion. Take a virtual tour with our interactive trails map. On the water, you can swim (no lifeguards on duty), boat, water ski, scuba dive and fish. We have set aside a large, no-wake zone for paddling.

Rent paddle boats, canoes, one- to two-person kayaks, life vests and paddles at the park store.Be safe on the water; read our water safety tips.

Stay at one of nearly 200 campsites or 22 cabins (two are ADA-accessible). Many sites are lakeside or have easy access to the lake. Several camping loops have playgrounds. Sponsored youth groups can rent our youth group camping area.

Fish for sunfish, catfish and several species of bass. We have two fishing piers, fish cleaning stations, and a boat ramp. You do not need a fishing license to fish from a pier or the shore in a state park.

-Borrow rods, reels and tackle boxes with hooks, sinkers and bobbers.

Buy food and supplies inside the park. The park store sells snacks, camping supplies and souvenirs. Sweet Marleys trailer, located next to the general store, offers snow cones, root beer floats, nachos, hot dogs, and more. Open Friday through Sunday and some weekdays.
