ALGAE ALERT: Aug. 18, 2023 - The LCRA has posted an alert of blue-green algae blooms at Inks Lake and Lake LBJ. Testing has revealed high toxic concentrations within the algae. Be water safe around algae blooms. Read details from the LCRA.

BOATER ADVISORY: Zebra mussels have invaded this reservoir! CLEAN, DRAIN AND DRY your boat, trailer, livewells/bait buckets, and other gear before traveling to another water body. Draining water is required by law and possession and transport of zebra mussels is illegal.

Public access to Inks Lake is available through Inks Lake State Park which borders approximately one-third of the eastern shoreline. A two-lane boat ramp is available at the park along with a lighted fishing pier and plenty of shoreline access. Camping is available at the park, along with many other recreational opportunities. Because of the park's popularity it is a good idea to make reservations well in advance if you would like to camp there.
