well there is a lake here, that's for sure. 100 miles from dallas, go ahead and stop at any of the 50 closer lakes on the way down i20. however, if you are going to be passing by, i can't say it's an entirely wasted stop. almost entirely, but not entirely.

A lovely state park near Tyler Texas with RV sites, a lake, can be a very quiet place to visit in east Texas. Tyler is a medium sized town with all amenities. There are also picnic areas for day use. Depending on weather and rainfall, and also time of year, this can be lush and green....or not. I like springtime... More

We reserved a pull through spot at Cedar Point for three days and two nights and were not disappointed! It wasn't hard to find at all but I recommend taking the loop if you are bringing a camper because driving those through the city is no fun. We made reservations online a month before and I am so glad we... More

My husband and I have a state park pass, we enjoy supporting our state parks and camping is one of our favorite pastimes. Tyler State Park is a beautiful retreat away from the rest of the world, we always try to camp at lake view, which is our favorite ...love having a view of the water. We enjoy hiking the... More

Went to Jellystone park for the weekend and ended up spending most of our time at the swimming area at the State Park. Loved the area, the staff were all very friendly and accommodating.

Lovely state park, nice pull thru shaded lots, easy access, near highway but no noise. Well placed shower houses but the ladies shower at cedar point loop was not clean. Best spots are lake view, but it was full. We drove thru- lovely but you will have lots of close neighbors. Recommend. Price $20 for aping plus $5 each park... More

I was heading to the area to pick up my daughter from her regular week long overnight camp located about 40 minutes from Tyler. In the past, I've spent the night in a local hotel. This time, I decided to take advantage of my parks pass and have a personal camping night in a park that I hadn't visited before.... More

Tyler state park goes a great job with the limited resources they are budgeted. Camping, fishing, hiking, is all great. There are padded, primitive and RV camp sites available. Make reservations early in early spring or around holidays. Bathrooms and other facility buildings are very clean and accessible. Park rangers are friendly and helpful and do a great job of... More

Hiked around the beautiful lake. Great day trip. Next time we will plan to swim/camp and stay longer. The park ranger at the entrance was very helpful.

My family drove 5 hours to stay a week at this park. It was worth it. The park is big, open and clean. They had full hookups and spacious sites. We took several of the trails and unfortunately they were not clearly marked so watch out for that. Another downside was the amount of ants in the park. We had... More
