This park is very hard to rate. It's a truly lovely setting. Very pretty. Lots of space. But, I would not bring a big-rig here again. BEWARE: After checking in, there are two roads to the campground where a big-rig would be assigned. The short route, which the rangers directed us to take, has a load-zoned bridge that's rated for 12,500 pounds on tandem axles. Even the front axle on our Allegro Bus is more than that. And one ranger told us, after I questioned them, that he can actually see the bridge flexing when people drive over it. That bridge is simply unsafe for a large diesel pusher. So, we had to turn around in a tight area and take the long way to the campground. That route is very steep, winding, and narrow. We've put 15,000 miles on our motorhome this year, staying in campgrounds and private RV parks from Texas to Alaska to Maine to the Florida Keys. This is easily the most challenging to navigate. As noted, I'd go elsewhere with a big-rig. There are, however, many bumper-pulls and 5th wheels in here. Once again, it's a beautiful park. Very peaceful. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Motorhome.

Price reflects $5 pp surcharge per night. Very clean. We stayed two nights but playing catch up and didn't have time to enjoy the park. Would love to have kayaked there. Lucky to get in with no reservation. Most sites were more level and asphalt in better condition than our's. We were glad to have a safe place to stay. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed 3 nights in Big Pine #44. The spots are large with many trees (we had a family of raccoons in one). Depending on the site, the trees could make it difficult to dial in a satellite dish. We were able to. The park was not busy and very quiet. We stayed Tuesday-Friday. The weekends may be different. Wi-Fi is pretty much not attainable. It would show up, but not strong enough to connect. This did not matter to us, we came for the peace and quiet. The spots have paved pull through parking and you can park so you face the woods, not the road. Firewood is available on the honor system with a donation box. The staff at the gate were very helpful and friendly. There is a park store, but we didn't visit it. We have a park pass, so there was no entrance fee ($5/day) and we got 1/2 off our 2nd night (normally $24/night). We originally reserved 2 nights, but were enjoying it so much we booked another night, wishing we could stay for another week. I only gave the site 4 stars because it is time for some re-paving. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A real gem of a park. Deep in the pine trees with a beautiful lake. One of the few state parks that offers full hook-ups. Many sites are pull through. Lots of wildlife. Many hiking/biking trails. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Motorhome.

$28 rate was lakeside with full hook-ups. Site 30 was paved and near level and allowed for satellite signal in spite of tall pine trees. Plenty of hiking trails in this beautiful park. Miles of paved roads for walking and biking. Large camp store offers kayak and canoe rentals. Stable power. Strong Verizon signal. Nearby to I-10 and tiger rescue park that offers personal tours. Good for a short stop over or a vacation stay. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Motorhome.

The rate shown is $20/night, but there's a fee of $5 per person, per night. I didn't care for that, but the park is nice. The sights are spaced well, with a picnic table, fire pit, and lantern hanger. The surrounding grounds, trails , lake, store, boat rental was all very nice. The Rangers are very friendly. The lake is about 50ac. And stocked well . We'd stay again gladly. Nice park, we'll be back We camped at Tyler State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Good fishing with 2 piers, 3 types of boats, camp store was inadequate with mostly souvenirs, but a convenience store is right across from the entry.

Very nice state park with good lake views. Most sites look level but I did see a few that were on a good slope. Good verizon service. They have wifi but it's so slow it doesn't work. Very quiet and peaceful. We would certainly stay here again. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
