Beautiful campground. Sites fairly close to campground roadways. Sites paved and level. Great family campground with swimming, floating deck, paddle boats, canoes, etc. Would stay here again. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Motorhome.

We just finished a 6 night stay at the full hook up sites called big pine area. The site was pull through and shaded. Kids had fun fishing, hiking, riding bikes, and swimming in the lake. The lake was family friendly and very clean. Not a ton to do nearby but the park offered a nice tree camping/lake combo. Wished we had a lake view site but they did not have full-hookup. Would recommend the lake view sites if going for a few days as the view was very pretty. Would go back again for a short jaunt to get away from the work grind. Also had to pay $5 per person per day in addition to the camp fee. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Ok for an overnight. Park is old and dated. Pull-in sites with campground traffic next to trailer. $26 is for checking in then add another $5 for each person. Convenient store and fuel on hyway in front of park. We would stay again when passing through. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice state park. I stayed here in the Blackjack Group area for a Regional Dutch Oven Gathering. Fantastic group setup other than the sites weren't designed for units with slides and awnings. The campsites all circle a central area with a pavilion. Perfect setup for our group to cook and share meals. The lake is gorgeous and appeared to be full unlike many other Texas lakes. I assume this is because it is spring fed. I will definitely return. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice state park. As mentioned before, the pull throughs are small semi circles and can be quite tight. Our first attempt at a space was not successful due to it being very un-level. The second space tried was much better but had to watch for the boulders. Had some confusion on the pricing. The fee for the campsite listed does not include the admission fee for each person. As a result it cost us 34 a night. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Motorhome.

Wow, this is a really nice park! Located just north of Tyler and I-20, it feels worlds apart from the hustle and bustle. It is quite large, hilly, and scenic with beautiful pines and hardwood trees, creeks, and a gorgeous lake. It offers camping, picnicking, hiking, biking, swimming, fishing, playgrounds, and boating. For boating, you can launch your own, or rent one from the park store, which offers canoes, kayaks, pedal boats, jon boats, and bike boats. The store also offers souvenirs as well as limited camping supplies and groceries. The park has scenic roads for vehicles and road bicycles, as well as 13 miles of trails for hikers and mountain bikers. It also has many structures that were built in the 1930’s by the Civilian Conservation Corps. There are a wide range of accommodations ranging from tent sites with water only, all the way up to full hookup RV sites, screened shelters, and mini-cabins. Some sites are very level, while others have a slope. Water and electric supplies are good. On the technology side, we received about 30 over-the-air TV stations, 4G LTE cell phone service from Verizon, and Wi-Fi internet from the park, although it was slow at times. While all the sites are quite nice, our favorite area is the Lakeview tent and trailer camping area. It is right on the shores of the lake, has great views, and is right on the Lakeshore trail, which is a very scenic and easy 2-mile loop around the lake. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a gorgeous park, very quiet with lots of trees. We stayed in one of the lake view sites, and had plenty of room for our 38' RV and tow vehicle. Unfortunately, we could only stay one night, but would have loved to stay longer. FYI -we got carryout from The Bodacious BBQ restaurant right off the interstate and it was very tasty. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Motorhome.

This park would get a much higher rating if they would clean up a bit and cut the grass. The sites for big rigs are pull throughs in small semi circles, barely got in with our 40 ft motorhome and small Honda tow. Sites are made tighter by strategic placement of big boulders around the campsite. Directions not clear on site entrances, some on left, some on right and thus we had to do a difficult turn around. On the positive, shade trees were at many sites. If you have a tent or smaller trailer there are some lovely lake front sites we could not fit into. We did have full hook ups and 50 amps, great for 95 degree temp. Nothing much in the area to see. This was a stopover for us. Big draw is fishing and trails in cooler weather. Probably would pick another campground if in a large motorhome. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful park with lots of shady tall trees. We stayed in the Big Pine Loop which has the longer pull-through spaces. There's a nice path around the lake. Very quiet at night and most of the time during the day as well. The large central area inside the loop gives you a spacious feeling if on an inside site. There are only a few sites suitable for 40' rigs. Most are a little shorter. Even though pull through, the sites can be difficult to get into. The sites are not all level and all need repaving. Utilities are good and there's a park host on hand in the loop if you need information or assistance. There are a few over the air TV stations, enough clear sky to aim a satellite dish, but bring your own internet. This is a very pleasant place to stay and if they'd improve the sites a little, I'd give it a 10. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for four glorious days and enjoyed every second of it. Staff was wonderful and the park is very well maintained. Spent dusk each day watching a raccoon come down from a tree and make its' rounds, staying clear of people. If you want to get away for a few day or spend some time resting up from your journeys (as we did), this is the place. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice smaller park, but will accept large rigs we had a site along the lake; believe we were told it was 40'. Great hiking trails; clean restrooms and showers were individual which would be nice. Very well stocked park store and a great small lake (65 acres I believe). We will return We camped at Tyler State Park in a Motorhome.

We camped on the lake in a pull through site on a winter weekend without reservations. This park, close to interstate 20, is a quiet retreat either before or after facing Dallas traffic. The park is convenient to gas stations, Walmart and a local Texas winery. Roads are easily negotiable. They have canoes and paddle boats to rent and a small gift shop. There is a beach. There are hiking trails and the rangers and volunteers can recommend lots of things to do at the park and in Tyler. I would suspect the campground is very busy during Spring and Fall. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for three nights while visiting friends in Tyler. It is a beautiful park. We received a site right on the lake..a beautiful spot! The staff was very helpful. We would stay here again. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here one night while passing through the area. First, husband and I were pleasantly surprised that this state park offered some sewer hookups, which was a great plus. Pretty little lake; since we were just staying one night--a Thursday night--we were able to get a "premium site" by the lake. Very nice site with a lot of deep space to the water. Paved semi-circle pull-through, table, fire ring, etc. with beautiful view and access to the water because the lake was a little low. Cons: Sites in need of some mowing/trimming. Some sites in desperate need of repaving--mostly the sites in area 3, which we noticed while taking a walk. Also, several large trees had to be cut down (due to the drought?), which the park staff was in the process of doing. But still a lot of tress remaining. Did make for lots of firewood available to buy. The host that was monitoring the area was not friendly. Such a shame the state of Texas doesn't allocate more money to the upkeep of its beautiful parks. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We fully expected to like this SP from all the reviews we read. And indeed, it's a very beautiful spot to camp. Lake view (which was full when we made our reservations) is definitely the loop to camp at. The views are outstanding. We stayed in the Cedar Point loop, which had some pull throughs and a few back ins. The spots were small and the road was pretty narrow, I don't see them accommodating larger rigs. The bathrooms were well kept up and clean. Nature trail (trail head near the from office) was easy (5 y/o with us) and scenic. Our only complaint is one of site style. So this might not apply to other's (and is the only reason I rated a 7 instead of higher). The sites are very open in relation to each other and we prefer more wooded sites with natural barriers from neighboring sites. Also, at night when it's quiet the road noise (I-20 is only a few miles away) intruded just a little bit. If this SP is busy (it wasn't when we were here) I think I'd feel claustrophobic and cramped with the way the sites are laid out. Again, the lake view loop is very nice: and we will definitely give this SP another try when we can get a reservation for one of these spots. The staff was very friendly. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Tent Trailer.
