State Park Getaway–Inks Lake State Park

Monday, March 15th, 2010

This is Passport to Texas

Spring break is that much anticipated week-long hiatus from school and work, which—for most Texans—takes place in March. And if you have a week to spare this month, and you live in the Hill Country, and are on the lookout for a nearby outdoor adventure, then get over to Inks Lake State Park. Bryan Frazier has details.

It’s hard to talk about spring break time of year without referencing Inks Lake SP.

It’s between Burnet and marble Falls, just to the west; it’s in the famed Highland Lakes chain that’s below Lake Buchanan, and just below Lake LBJ.

Whether you’re looking for fishing, or boating, personal watercraft, canoes, kayaks, or just a leisurely little hike with the beautiful Hill Country scenery, with the canyons and the granite and limestone outcroppings and the juniper trees…Inks lake resonates with a lot of people because Central Texas, this time of year—it’s just a place that lots of people enjoy.

A popular place, year-round. It’s one of our parks that has great and solid year round visitation. And with good reason.

You can find more SP Getaway information on the Texas Parks and Wildlife website.

That’s our show… we record our series at the Production Block studios in Austin, Texas…For Texas Parks and Wildlife…I’m Cecilia Nasti.
