Tyler State Park is a great place to be. Beautiful scenery, food hiking, and water fun. We plan to camp there as soon as the temps go down some. Enjoy!

Had fun hiking in the park on various occasions. Some of the paths are shared with bikers though so you have to pay attention.

Our family frequents Tyler State Park. We love to camp, swim, fish and hike. The challenging trails have become regular exercise for our family of 5.

We have been here several times for fishing and swimming. The trails are nice and we always see birds, lizards, squirrels, etc. You can find some great photo opportunities too! We've always fished from shore and haven't had luck. Additionally, the times we have gone fishing, other people come to the same place and eventually crowd us out. The playground... More
