We launched at the Inks Lake State Park boatramp, I think the only public boat ramp on Inks Lake. Nice double ramp with docks at a good height is in a large cove with the Devil's Water Hole at the eastern end. In this video we sailed from the ramp into Devil's Waterhole. We saw a two blue herons, turtles, numerous cormorants and two kayakers. There are many submerged rocks and shallows up this way, so it's no place for a keel boat.

There is a scenic overlook on Hwy 29 to see the Devils Waterhole from above

The park store, with canoe, kayak and paddleboat rentals, was conveniently located near the boat ramp and the center of most of the campsites. Ink's Lake State Park store
