Since it is one of our older parks, the restrooms are not always close to some of the campsites. But on the other hand, some of the campsites are huge and somewhat secluded. We camped at spot 145 which is at the end of a loop and very secluded, but about 1/4 mile from the facilities. I love the lake,... More

My friend and I attempted to hike Loop C but had real issues with the trail markings. At one point the trail intersected with the red trail (another loop) and the signage (plastic ties on trees) was opposite of that on the trail map. It is a beautiful trail, but trust your gut and the map -- not markings!

This is a very nice state park. There are lots of camp sites and shelters. The lake is lovely and some of the campsites are lakeview. We visited the store and fould everything from TSP coozies to wind chimes and cooking supplies. The swimming area is larger than most at state parks I've been to. We were camping the week... More

This is an awesome state park. The lake and forest are beautiful making this a great getaway. Camping grounds, facilities, canoe rentals, plus a great hiking trail around the lake. Dogwoods in bloom were beautiful offset by the piney woods.

My family and I have been here many times during all seasons and it's wonderful. There are many trails to hike and the trail around the lake is amazing. The are many camping options and canoe and paddle boat rentals available. Give it a visit and you won't be disappointed.

This is a very beautiful park, especially in spring. Wonderful camping sites around the lake, miles of hiking trails, friendly staff. A great place to stay for a few days

The park roads in the TSP give the illusion of going for miles and miles. Actually I suspect some of them are several miles long. Lots of camping spots and some of the tent spots are right on the water with excellent tent pads and view of the lake. Although there are many, many sites for RVs I find them... More

The park is amazing, well kept and clean. Lot's of activities (fishing, canoe's pedal boats) to do for everyone. Would definitely recommend for a camping experience.

I have gone here quite a few times since my move at the start of this month. I really love the trails and the scenery. The rangers are very nice.

It all started with Tyler State Park. Tyler was our family's first camping experience when our kids were just 1, 3 and 12 years old. Tyler is about an hour and a half outside Dallas. Very heavily wooded beautiful area. It has a spring fed lake, swimming area with beach kayak, canoe, flat bottom boat and paddle boat rentals, bike... More
