GREAT!

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.

We have been to this park several times and always enjoy it. RV campsites are layed out well, level, and spaced to provide a little privacy. Bike and hiking trails are well maintained. Great peaceful park with friendly rangers.

My wife and I bought ourselves a Casita travel trailer for Christmas (that is, for Christmas 2014 and all the Christmases into the future). This last weekend, we finally got out first chance to take it out on the open road, and Joan decided we should head to Tyler State Park, which she'd heard good things about. When we got... More

We went in the fall, and hiked for most of a day. Very nice and well signposted trails, great for the changing colors in Fall.

We stayed in a screened camp building with power and on a concrete floor. I remember that the concrete got mighty hard under a sleeping bag. There was running water right at the site. We were there while the lake was open for swimming and water activities. We had a great time. This is a great place to go with... More

Its a really beautiful state park and not too far from the Dallas area. We visited in spring and really loved the place. The camping site was very close to the lake and a well maintained one. The park itself is very serene with multiple trails to hike. The hikes were very comfortable and not too hard to complete. We... More

Tyler state park is a good place to go swimming, canoe/kayaking, trail hiking, and camping. Never caught a fish, but it's the only place I know of locally that you do not have to have a fishing license to fish, so that's a plus. Remember to lock up and HIDE your valuables! There was a string of break ins over... More

We loved Tyler State Park for many reasons but mostly because it is a very beautiful park filled with 75-100 year-old pine and hardwood trees. We were able to see large fish in the tip of the lake as we sat on the bench enjoying our stay. They have fantastic walking trails are are definitely pet friendly.
