We offer the river use as an add on for camping or as a day pass for non overnight campers. McDonald Farm sits in the historic farming community of Jonah, TX between Georgetown and Taylor on scenic Highway 29. McDonald Farm is named after the patriarch of the family, J.H. Mcdonald, who first acquired the property in 1911. The farm sits on the bank of the San Gabriel River and features a lush canopy of huge pecan trees, sprawling corn fields, prairie, and forest. We are a working farm! We primarily grow corn, but we also have livestock on the property. During daytime hours, you will likely see a variety of farm chores being completed. We are only 7 miles from the Georgetown, TX historical district and square. Some say it’s the most beautiful town square in all of Texas. Enjoy shopping, dining, and festivals!

Highway 29 can be busy at times, despite being a two-lane road. We also have neighbors, so we request quiet hours after 10 pm Sunday - Thursday and midnight Friday and Saturday.

The best camping near Inks Lake State Park guide

Overview

About

Located an hour away from Austin, Inks Lake is perfect for swimming, kayaking, canoeing, scuba diving, fishing, water skiing, and boating. Cool off with a dip or dive off the granite cliffs around Devil’s Waterhole, a popular swimming and cliff jumping spot. Nine miles of hiking trails through rolling hills offer land-based fun, along with volleyball, geocaching, and picnicking. Birdwatchers can take advantage of blinds, while anglers can fish for bass, catfish, crappie, and sunfish, and use the convenient fish cleaning stations. The park’s campground offers nearly 200 campsites mostly along the lake, and includes everything from primitive to full hookup sites and camping cabins.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. All campsites, including cabins and primitive sites, can be reserved up to five months in advance. Make a reservation as soon as you know your dates.
  2. If your plans are flexible, try to visit during the week, during non-holiday periods, or in winter. The park, lake, and campgrounds are open year-round.
  3. If visiting as part of a group, consider the group camp, which can be reserved up to 12 months in advance.

When to go

Summer is the perfect time to cool off in Inks Lake, and go fishing, swimming, paddling, and boating. It’s also the most popular time of year, followed by spring, when wildflowers are in bloom. The lake and park are open year-round, so time your visit for winter to escape the crowds and take advantage of weekly and monthly rates for campsites.

Know before you go

  • The camp store rents canoes, kayaks, and pedal boats. Rangers offer paddling programs, and there is a no-wake zone for paddling.
  • Be careful when swimming or cliff jumping, as there are no lifeguards in the park.
  • Bring binoculars to see the many birds in the park.
  • Fishing licenses are not required when fishing from the two fishing piers and boat ramp, but are required if fishing from a boat.
  • Pets are not allowed in the cabin area or primitive camping area.
  • Leave your drones at home, as they’re not permitted inside the park.
