  • Wouldn't be bad except the constant racket from weedeaters, lawnmowers and chainsaws going from dawn to dusk.  more »
  • What a nice park! Great, easy 3+ mile hike around Lake Tyler... Easy enough for our toddler. Beautiful & clean. Many amenities, including boat rentals. The campgrounds looked great, from primitive...  more »
  • We were looking for a day hike from Dallas/Plano area. After several searches for a last-minute destination, we settled on Tyler State Park, which is about 1 hr 40 min from Plano. From entrance late.....  more »
  • Best Texas State Park I've been to. Water was very clear. The grounds were well kept, but the bathrooms and showers could use some work. Stainless steel sinks and commodes reminiscent of older highway rest areas. Doors were hard to close. A majority of the sites were smaller pull-throughs, so larger rigs (30+) may have trouble getting in. Electric was stable at 114 volts for 30 amp service, but dipped to 110 easily. Probably want to watch your appliances. Lots of raccoons at dusk, and they run the park at night. Pretty acclimated to people too. Our neighbors had some jump up on their picnic table while they were eating. That's why they caution folks to not feed the animals. Overall, a very good visit with pleasant park hosts and rangers.
  • Our first visit was today to check the place out for future camping. I loved the store & pedal boats! The area was well kept & staff was so nice. Campsites were nice & snug within woods. Walking to each loop is out, unless your training for a 5k😝 Huge hills! Loved it none the less.
  • We stayed for one night at the Big Pine campground. Beautiful state park. Nice campsites, level and easily accessible. Would rate it as a five star, but grass was high around the campsite and in the little open grassy area. But still very enjoyable. Nice flat paved roads for kids to ride their bikes 🚲 along, which our girls did. Highly recommend the state park.
  • This is one of my favorite places to take my family. They have close to 20 miles of hiking, walking, running or biking trails. The fishing is good year round and includes bass, catfish, crappie, and bream. You can swim on their beach, you can rent canoes, kayaks paddles boats, paddle boards and fishing equipment. They have top notch camping spots, both RV and primitive. They also have small cabins for rent and plenty of public restrooms. You can visit their convenience store for snacks, drinks, ice, tackle or gifts. I highly recommend this park.
  • Clean park, water is nice clear and clean. No motor boats. Great lake for kayak, paddle boards and row boats. Swimming area is nice. Staff have all been nice. All the camping sites ive stayed at and seen driving around are pull through and paved. I would stay here again.
