The Ghost Forest At This Texas State Park You Have To See To Believe
You’ve probably heard about Caddo Lake, the world’s largest flooded cypress forest, but there’s another “ghost forest” in Texas that few people know exists. It can be found at Inks Lake State Park in Burnet, and the twisted stumps of the skeletal trees impart a haunting beauty that words can’t fully describe.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Inks Lake State Park charges an entrance fee of $6 per day for ages 13 and up, while children 12 and under get in free. Visit the official park website or Facebook page to learn more.
