Inks Lake Travel Tips
Relax at Inks Lake Vacation Rentals
Inks Lake is part of the seven lakes that make up the Highland Lakes chain in the Texas hill country. Surrounded by granite hills, Inks Lake is adjacent to the Colorado River and is the centerpiece of Inks Lake State Park. Staying at Inks Lake vacation houses puts you close to the 1,200 acres of recreational facilities at Inks Lake State Park, so you can get outside and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Outdoor Activities at Inks Lake
Tour guides at Inks Lake are available to help you find the outdoor activities that are best for your family during your Texas hill country vacation. Nature walks, fish seining, geology hikes, lakeshore ecology, the Devil's Waterhole Canoe Tour, and Junior Ranger programs are all available for visitors to participate in at Inks Lake State Park. Staying in Texas Hill Country lodging means you can sign up for multiple events because you're close to the park and don't have to fight the tourist crowds to get there.
Visit Area Attractions in Texas Hill Country
Longhorn Caverns open up and invite visitors in to look around the caves and caverns peeking out of the ground in Texas hill country. These caverns allow you to see what goes on underneath the surface of the Earth through guided tours, so you see the best formations. Also, take time to check out the Vanishing Texas River Cruise by Canyon of the Eagles. As the waters in the river drop due to drought, see the old town of Bluffton, previously covered by water, in addition to all the wildlife and scenery Texas hill country is known for. These cruises sell out quickly, so you may want to book your reservation before you arrive at Inks Lake.
