Destination: Inks Lake State Park

Date: January 25 & 26, 2020

HikeCampHikers: Judy, Maria, Bettina, Kelly and Suzanne

Travel Time from Austin: 1.5 hours

Campsite: We decided to forego the primitive camp site this trip so that we could have a fire. We reserved site #349 and that was a good thing because all campsites were completely booked, even the primitive sites. Our site bordered the lake and was spacious enough to easily accommodate 5 tents (limit of 8 people per site). We looked at other sites and decided that reserving site #349 and #341 would make a great group site. Also site #346 was another good option, lots of room for tents, private, and on the lake.

Saturday Hike: We went for a long hike that started close to our campsite and crossed the main road and looped around the primitive camp sites.

Sunday Hike: We broke down camp and had breakfast and left for Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge and hiked on the trails there before heading back to Austin. It was our first time there, the trails were nice and it was fun to do something different.

Camp food: Kale salad, green beans and tomato soup. Lots of yummy white cheddar.
