Tyler State Park Information:
This 985 acre park features a 64 acre spring fed lake surrounded by a mature forest of mixed pine and hardwood trees. Many of the trees are 75 to 100 years old. Dogwood and Redbuds bloom lakeside during the spring. The original wood and stone buildings and other park improvements were made by the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps). Between 1935 and 1941, the CCC built roads, bridges and culverts, planted trees, built the earthen dam to impound the lake, built a group picnic ground, a lily pond, a children’s wading pool, a bathhouse, concession, dance pavilion, and a boathouse and the caretaker’s house. It also built a rock outcropping to disguise the diversion of the spring to the area. The bath and boat houses were restored in 2004. The hard wood forests and the native tall grass prairie attract approximately 135 bird species. The lake provides excellent year round bass fishing, and winter fly fishing for stocked trout.The park is located north of Tyler, Texas on FM 14, 2 miles north of IH-20.
