East Texas Fishing and Camping
Tyler State Park – Tyler
Is your family looking for a great place to fish and camp?
Tyler State Park is a great option.
It is a pretty big park with lots of activities for everyone in the family.
The spring-fed lake is 64 acres, giving plenty of room for all kinds of water sports. Swim, kayak, canoe, and paddleboard. Rentals are available through the park or bring your own. Rental options include canoes, kayaks, pedal boats, stand up paddle boards, and john boats.
Tyler State Park has thirteen miles of hiking trails. One, Whispering Pines Trail, was out in the 1930s by the CCC. Plan your hike ahead of time with the interactive trails map.
The fishing lake is popular with anglers seeking bass, catfish, crappie, and perch. There are three fishing piers for your family’s convenience and a boat ramp.
Are you new to fishing? Tyler State Park even loans out fishing rods, reels, and tackle boxes. If you are new to fishing, you don’t have to have a fishing license in Texas state parks.
There are a number of camping options available at Tyler State Park. Choose from tent camping sites, RV hook ups, screened shelters, and rental cabins.
