Tyler State Park reviews
Day trip from DFW. We didn’t camp. Had an excellent day hiking the trails and enjoying the beautiful tall pine trees. We rented kayaks on the lake. It was very peaceful. We had no problems parking...

It's a wonderful, small state park. The lake is a clean and clear small lake great for swimming, kayaking and peddle boating. There are several very pleasant walking trails. The park store has a good variety of souvenirs and some drinks and snacks. There you can rent peddle boats and kayaks as well as check out fishing gear. I lake and surrounding woods are very scenic.
The great outdoors. I love the pine trees towering high that stretch above you forever. The calm still lake in the early morning, fog rising off it with those trees along the shore is the stuff Bob Ross paintings are made of. We rented a canoe and paddled around that lake. It was a chilly morning but it was awesome scenery. The park staff was friendly and helpful on every encounter from check in to the store and to the water front. Go out and enjoy some of Texas' natural beauty.
