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

Tyler State Park is a pretty little park just north of Tyler, but a great middle distance between Dallas and Shreveport. We camped here as a mid-point place to visit with grandchildren. The little lake, we think it's more like a pond, but it's a nice feature. It's an easy stroll through the park with lots of birds and other... More

We often go here for a day trip and hike. If you like to camp, they have many options from tent sites to yurts. We like the sites with water & electricity. They're super nice and a more convenient way to tent camp. If you can, plan ahead. They fill up fast, especially in peak season.

many good sites to choose from. we chose pull thru, nice and roomy. very hilly so be wary bike riding and most trails would not be suitable for average person to bike. smooth surface so bring scooters to ride around camping loop. rent kayaks/paddleboats/canoes for fun time at lake or bring your own they have a boat ramp. trail heads...

This was our second visit to this sweet park. Rangers were very kind and watch campsites. We felt safe which is nice. Love the pull thru sites! Enjoyed the lake. Rangers allowed us to use the boat ramp for our dog to swim. We also loved it! Great park! We will return!!!

I will have to say I am EXTREMELY disappointed with Tyler State Park. I stayed there one night in one of their efficiency cabins. I paid $53 for the night, $10 for the entrance fee for my boyfriend and I, and then the $75 deposit. When checking out I received a paper stating I will receive my deposit back. Two... More
