As we continue to feature some great state parks around Texas, we want to make sure we talk about Tyler State Park! Fall is a great time to explore Tyler Park and take advantage of outdoor activities without having to be concerned with that dreaded Texas heat!
Located in Tyler, Texas at 789 Park Road, this state park features plenty of camping and activities to keep the whole family entertained. Let’s take a closer look at what activities are available to you and your crew!
If you are looking for scenic trails, Tyler State Park is for you! The Whispering Pines Nature Trail is an amazing nature trail that is about a mile long loop and fairly easy to hike. Guests will marvel at the pines and what types of creatures and plants they can find. Besides the Whispering Pines Nature trail, the park has around 13 miles of other trails that are accessible with varying levels of difficulty.
For the fishermen and women, Tyler State Park is the place to be. The park features a 64-acre spring-fed lake, which houses tons of crappie, perch, catfish, bass and more! With three fishing piers and one boat ramp, you can choose which way you would like to fish. Don’t have your own pole? The park rents out rods, tackle boxes and more! Another great feature of fishing in this park is that you don’t need a fishing license as long as you elect to fish from the shore. Save money and time and come fish at Tyler State Park!
Besides trails and fishing, guests at Tyler State Park can also rent boats, kayaks or canoes. In the fall months, boats are available to rent on the weekends only. If you want to be on land there are plenty of other activities such as geocaching and mountain biking. Basically if you can think of it, Tyler State Park has it!
If you want to stay overnight at the park, there are tons of great camping options. For the RVers, there are tons of sites available that have great views of the lake, electric and sewer as well. Depending on what you need at your site, you can reserve a spot for an amazingly low rate! If you are not RVing, there are also great limited use shelters and screen shelters for use. These are for the campers who want to take advantage of all the park has to offer but want a roof over their heads at night. No matter what camping you may want to do, take a look at all of the options.
We think fall is a great time of year to get out and explore our state park. If you need anything for your next RV vacation, stop by Cliff Jones today and stock up on parts and accesories!
