Visitors enjoy camping, backpacking, and hiking.Since Inks is a constant level lake, droughts do not affect water-related activities such as lake swimming (unsupervised beach), boating, water skiing, scuba diving, and fishing.
Rouben C. on Inks Lake State Park Trail
A great trail, well marked, clean, wildflowers were blooming, only complaint is that it is too close to highway 29 and can hear cars whizzing by, otherwise 5 stars.
John L. on Inks Lake State Park Trail
Fun for the whole family.
Amazing hikes here. The recent rainfall has all the little streams burbling along. Trails for all types in the park.
Two things to note:
1. Pick up the colored trail map when you check in. The trails are not marked the best and the color coding will help. Also pick up the 'Hiking Trail Guide For Pecan Flats' (or download the PDF file) if you want to get the most out of the Interactive Trail. There are several markers that point out special trees, plants, rocks, and views along this trail and the guide tells you about them.
2. Make a trip to the north of the park to do the Devil's Waterhole and Valley Springs Creek trails. The water hole would be worth swimming in the warm weather. The Valley Spring Creek trail is an additional .84 miles and it is well worth hiking.
