Devils Waterhole in Inks Lake State Park

Devils Waterhole, InksLake by Justin Terveen

Devil’s Waterhole is a small extension of Inks Lake in Burnet, which is almost completely surrounded by rock. A canoe tour is conducted at Devil’s Waterhole, and although diving and swimming may be done at the waterhole, it is at one’s own risk, without a lifeguard.

According to local lore, the inlet referred to as Devil’s Waterhole got its name for the land’s previous owner, who was known to curse — loudly — whenever his wagon got stuck crossing it.

There is abundant wildlife at the park, including deer, vultures, quail, and many other types of birds.
