Y'all can come for 1 or 2 nights or just come for the afternoon for some fun if overnight camping is too much for you. Inks Lake also offers cabins that you can rent if thats more your speed. Please RSVP so we can make sure we have enough space. Please leave a comment letting me know if you'll be coming 1 or both nights or just for the day. There is a park entrance fee per adults that you will have to cover yourself.
From the website:
Inks Lake State Park offers family fun on water and land. With its sparkling blue water, colorful rock outcrops, and striking sunsets, this gem of the Hill Country is just an hour northwest of Austin.
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.

Fishing Tip Sheet
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.
Hike the small canyon or swim at Devil’s Waterhole. When Valley Spring Creek is running, you can explore scenic waterfalls upstream of the lake.
