At Tyler State Park, you can boat, fish, swim in the lake, hike, mountain bike, picnic, geocache, camp, bird watch and study nature. Whether you visit for an afternoon or a weekend, you will find plenty to do here.
Explore the Pineywoods on more than 13 miles of trails. Don’t miss the Whispering Pines Nature Trail, laid out more than 70 years ago by the Civilian Conservation Corps.
Fish the lake for crappie, perch, catfish, or bass. The park has three fishing piers and a boat ramp. You can also borrow fishing rods, reels, and tackle boxes as part of Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Tackle Loaner Program. Remember, you do not need a fishing license to fish from the shore in a state park.
You can rent a boat year-round or bring your own. The Texas State Park Store rents canoes, paddleboats, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, and johnboats.
Campsites, cabins, or screened shelters are available for overnight stays.
