Swimmers at Inks Lake State Park

The lake is very popular with boaters, fishermen, campers and swimmers. The lake is so large that you will never feel crowded on the lake. There is always plenty of "elbow room" on each of the Highland Lakes. In 1995 over 1 1/2 million Striper Bass were stocked in Lake Buchanan. Fishing Guides are available to take you out on the lake.

There is a nice granite gravel shore around the lake providing an ideal beach for swimming, wading and sun bathing.
