I retired from Texas Parks & Wildlife and now live very near Inks Lake SP. It is a crown jewel of the state park system.

An alternative to Garner SP is actually right across the river. We stayed at Parkview Riverside for our first "real" camping experience. It was awesome.

Garner SP has added lots of new spaces but like all Texas State Parks, it's hard to get in them. As noted, you have to plan way ahead. We have a hard time planning that far out.

My Husband now works for the Lake Brownwood State Park, and we are planning a trip to Inks. I found it on the Texas Parks & Wildlife website. We are Brand New (used) owners of a 2008 cherokee lite (our 1st trailer) and are kinda staying in the vacinity til we get this trailer thing down. We took it to Brownwood State Park for 8 days on a working vacation and all went well the 1st day til the fridge quite working. Mud dobbers had been flying in and out of the vents, so brilliant me but painters tape over each vent to keep them out. Lesson learned! HAHA Had to go up to the headquarters to get internet access and found that these dominic fridges need plenty of vent. Once I took all the tape off it started cooling again!! We now have screen over all the vents and working great. Any info you can give me lakebucky on Inks would be fabulous. We head out July 22nd with the 2 grandkids 12 & 3 and 3 dogs!

We will check out Blanco when we head to the hill country in the fall. We normally stay at Lady Bird Johnson City Park just outside Fredericksburg and really enjoy it.

It is a must to plan ahead and make reservations with this park as it is one of the most popular state parks. I would camp there but we live only about 5 miles from the park and have the lake across the street from us. The website has so much information on it. I don't know what I could add that is not on the website. Hope you can get the reservations and enjoy!
