  • It had been many years since my last visit to Tyler State Park, but the magical beauty of all the bright green trees while driving on the narrow winding road brought back such fond memories. There are hiking trails, campsites, picnic areas, nature trails, bike trails, concession area, gorgeous lake, swimming area, boat launch areas, and much more. The lake was surrounded with trees on the sides and background, and the sunlight was glistening all across the top of the water. Although it was fairly cool that day and I am sure the water was quite cool, there were still a lot of guests enjoying the swimming area, while many others were enjoying picnics around the area. Lots of smiles could be seen.....and lots of giggles, laughs, and excitement in voices could be heard! The park appeared to be very clean and well taken care of. I would also like to commend the young man who worked at the front entrance area. He was very nice, friendly, helpful, and patient in assisting me and "catching up" with some of the changes in the park since I had been there. Unfortunately, due to my time constraints, my visit was limited today, but will definitely be back soon when I have an extended period of time to stay and enjoy and appreciate the full offerings of Tyler State Park.
  • Let me state, we love to spend time here. I only give this a 4 Star because of the trash on the lake trail opposite of the concession. We found socks, beer cans, boxes, bait trays, used toilet paper, and an assortment of stuff along the way. I would implore the Staff to put up signage, say something at the entrance, etc. Folks, please understand that you must Leave No Trace. This is a place for all to enjoy.
  • I have loved this place since I came here as a teen with my family for picnics and swimming. My husband and I camped here with our children when they were young and we still come here at least once a year. Always clean, friendly staff and very serene and peaceful. Lots of fun stuff to do!
  • A fun place to spend a morning or afternoon. We visited in Spring and got to see the dogwoods in all their glory. The towering pines are a sight to behold to. Will likely return in the fall to check out the vibrant foliage.
  • Love biking on the trail system here. Then heading straight to the nice swimming area. Water is clear and nice and cold. Staff is always cheery and helpful.
