In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

Explore Tyler State Park

Explore Tyler State Park!

Play at the lake, wet a hook, wander through the trails, or relax with your binoculars at Tyler State Park. You can boat, fish, swim in the lake, mountain bike, picnic, camp, bird watch and just enjoy nature. There’s plenty to do! You can view an interactive map here.

There is a 64-acre spring-fed lake that is in the middle of the park. You can rent a canoe, paddleboat, kayak, bike boat, john boat or a paddleboard. Or if you prefer fishing, the lake is stocked with crappie, perch, catfish or bass. The park has three fishing piers and a boat ramp. They also loan fishing rods, reels and tackle boxes as part of TPWD’s Tackle Loaner Program. Remember, you do not need a fishing license to fish from the shore in a state park!

There are also more than 13 miles of trails throughout the park. Whether you enjoy hiking or mountain biking, there is something to see. One trail to check out is the Whispering Pines Nature Trail. According to the park, it was laid out more than 70 years ago by the Civil8ian Conservation Corps.

The park also has campsites to spend the night. You can hookup or rent a cabin.

The park is open daily and it is $6 dollars to get in (kids 12 and under get in for free.)
