Inks Lake State Park | Adventure at Our Door (c. 1959)

Inks Lake is the second of six Highland Lakes formed by a series of dams on the Colorado River. Park development began shortly after the reservoir's creation in 1938, with then-Congressman Lyndon B. Johnson enlisting Civilian Conservation Corps participation. Company 854 arrived on the scene in 1940, fresh off their work at Longhorn Cavern State Park. Produced by the Jamieson Film Company for the Texas State Parks Board, this 1950s promotional film segment showcases not only the park's facilities and amenities but also the inviting scenery of the Texas Hill Country.
