Inks Lake State Park

I’ve been visited Inks Lake State Park near Burnet, TX about once a decade for 30 years.

This time was the first time camping with my wife and three kids. Annabelle and I had tent camped here in 2011, but the rest of the family stayed home during that trip.

We stayed in one of the cabins available for rent instead of tent camping or renting an RV. When I say “cabin” don’t envision a structure made of wood logs. These cabins are the cinder block variety. They have a door, two double bunk beds, a table with chairs and that’s all. Even though the structure was on the spartan side it was nice to have a place to put our stuff and some bunk beds to sleep on.

We had a great time hiking the trails around the park and canoeing on the lake. Our cabin was directly next to the lake so most of our time was spent on the banks. It was still too cold to swim comfortably so we didn’t jump into the water.

On the way home we had brunch at the Bluebonnet Cafe in Marble Falls Texas. There was a line out the door, but the wait for food was worth it. It was also fun to visit at the beginning of bluebonnet season in Texas to get this great shot:

I felt like The Daytripper driving through the Texas Hill Country enjoying the great scenery and some terrific food.
