Inks Lake State Park Video: Peace & Serenity in the Texas Hill Country

By  | 

“It’s just beautiful to see the colors, and the different shades of the sun shining down on the water,” Park Manager Rick Meyers said of Inks Lake State Park in a video posted by Texas Parks and Wildlife on their official YouTube channel. The video features some of the parks finest highlights, identifying that the Inks Lake itself is approximately 800 acres in area. Meyers goes on to explain that waterskiing on the lake is a great pastime, as well as canoeing, kayaking, and relaxing in paddleboats.

Focusing on the tranquility of the area, Meyers notes in the video that fishing is also a fantastic option in the park since there’s “very little fishing pressure” on the lake, and most of the time anglers will catch something. Which is why it’s also quite ideal for the kids’ fishing programs that are run by Inks Lake State Park, allowing the children to learn and not get skunked in the process.

The park also features 7.5 miles of hiking trails, some of which have moderate to intense skill requirements, and all of which necessitate bringing drinking water with you. There’s also approximately 1.5 miles of an ADA trail (handicap accessible). A sweet-spot at Inks Lake State Park is recognized as Devil’s Waterhole swimming area, where visitors can jump off the small cliffs surrounding it to cool off. But the main focus is simply catching your breath in the great scenery of the Texas Hill Country, seeing the wildlife, camping out, and finding peace and serenity in a little slice of Heaven such as Inks Lake State Park.
