My outdoor group comes here regularly because the 9 miles of hike and bike trails are so well-maintained!! The lake area looks to be amply wonderful once warm weather arrives with paddle boats, a boat ramp, and easy access from all around the park. Restrooms are always clean, well stocked, and with quickly flowing warm water even during the winter... More

Love Tyler State Park for families of all ages. Great place to camp, fish, swim, kayak, and explore. The park store has everything you need and fun gifts too. We loved the hiking and bike riding. The park is not huge, but another example of a beautifuln Texas State Park.

We camped here in the Lakeview area for my birthday recently and had a GREAT time! Beautiful park with lots of hiking. The boys did not catch any fish but had a great time none the less. Boat rental available, small store onsite. Nice playground. Loved the waterfall and wading pond too! Can't wait to come back in the summer... More

This is one of my favorite state parks. There is an abundance of trees to help keep you cool in the summer. The lake is very clean and there are boats to rent and plentiful fishing. There are MILES of trails to explore from easy to quite challenging. Take the time to get the kids out into nature.

The almost 1000 acre Tyler State park , containing a 64 acre lake is located North of Tyler. Sorrounded by beautiful pine forest the park is good for nature study, camping, trekking, fishing ,swimming and mountain hiking or bike. The fishing fee is included in the entrance fee.

The park has a nice big pond or little lake with fishing available. They have a small bait shop that also sells stuff for just a family day at the park including food and grill items. The park also has a lot of carrying terrain in the woods, great for hiking. Fun place to visit.

Nice place to take the family, miles of biking and hiking trails and you can rent paddle boats or at least you could back in the 70's when I was there. A very cool piece of history.
