New and Improved: Tyler State Park

This is Passport to Texas

Tyler State Park in the east Texas Pineywoods is ready for its close-up. After a great deal of planning and hard work, the park more of what folks expect in a great outdoor destination. Bryan Frazier explains.

It was part of the Capital Campaign that we did at Tyler State Park.

And we made some four million dollars in renovations. And that’s everything from converting screen shelters into little mini-cabins with air conditioning, to complete renovation to the group dining hall with air conditioning with new appliances, to renovating campground loops with new blacktop roads and new water and electric hookups and new tent pads.

So, the experience that people are going to find there is even better.

Tyler is a great park. It’s known for its biking trails. It’s known for its great 60-acre fishing and swimming lake there. It’s the beautiful Pineywoods of East Texas…it’s actually not that far from the DFW area. But, it’s even better with these upgrades and improvements. It just makes people’s experience on the other side of the park gate more of what they love. And we’re proud to offer that at Tyler SP.

Reserve your campsite online when you log onto the Texas parks and Wildlife website.

That’s our show for today…with funding provided by Chevrolet…building dependable, reliable trucks for more than 90 years.
