First of all this is a beautiful park and lake, just waiting for you to explore, hike, camp, swim, bike, and/or fish. Lots of pine trees and 8 hiking trails the shortest one is less than a half mile and the longest 2.53 miles with varying degrees of elevation and skill. We stayed in the pull-throughs which were plenty long for our 33' Fifth wheel and fairly level. Utilities were in great working order and site was clean and generously laid out. This park was developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) and therefore has a nostalgic feeling about it. There is a children's wading pool, rock waterfall, and Beauchamp Springs. Scenic views and historic buildings blend into the landscape. We have stayed here before and will stay here again. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tyler State Park is just outside the city of Tyler, home of "The Rose Garden of America" which is very pretty and a nice place to walk. Plenty of shopping in the city too, but don't miss out on the country. The little towns around here are full of oilfield history and a lot of peace and quite.

Everything from our review two years ago is still accurate except that we did hear some traffic noise is the distance this time, and the power went out after a storm for about 16 hours. Also, there are lots of ants in the campsites, which invaded our RV, and the park was out of firewood the entire week we were there. We bought some at the nearby convenience store, but it turned out to be so green it wouldn't burn. Other than that, we enjoyed a lovely stay. Staff was friendly and helpful, as were the hosts. We enjoyed hiking and boating, and relaxing while taking in the view of the lake. Overall it is a very nice park. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tyler State Park near Tyler, Texas is a beautiful park built by the CCC in the late 1930's. We were in the Big Pine camping loop site 73. 50A electric, water and sewer for $24/night. Nice hiking trails. Best park store we've seen. Small lake with big bass. Saw a guy land a 12.7 lb largemouth bass! Nearly a Share Lunker (13 lbs). Lindale is 8 miles west of the park with groceries, restaurants and of course, Walmart. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.
