Members Appreciation Camping Tyler State Park

Come for free camping and BBQ to Tyler State Park. It was so great last spring we are going to do it again. All dues paying members will get free camping (Friday and Saturday) and BBQ on Saturday night.

For those who would like to join us but haven't paid their yearly dues, the fee is $7 per person per night to camp and $9 for the BBQ dinner on Saturday.

Last year we biked the mountain bike trails, hiked, swam, and kayaked. There will be some personal-owned-but-available-to-all kayaks for the group. Fishing is free while in the state park even if you don't have a license.

We have 3 sites reserved, so if you are coming, sign up quick.

See you there!

    Hey guys seems I lost my grill at the Tyler state park last week I unpacked everything when I got home and only today I noticed the grill is not back in its usual place. Did any body pick it up by chance those of you that left on Sunday? The grill is home made expanded metal framed on angle steel I welded that I hope someone got it!!! Please let me know.
    Thanks!!

    In case the club banner doesn't make it to Tyler tomorrow, look for Eric and Barbara's gold Toyota Highlander, Tom's blue-gray Ford Escape, or my old tan Ford pickup with kayaks in the back.

      Had a great time this weekend. My feet are kinda sore though. It was really nice to paddle one of the DeLUX wood kayaks that Eric and Barbara built. Really nice boats and now I am wanting to make one myself.

      Also I just have one small backpacking tent, so I don't need much room.

    In past years they have been pretty tight about closing the mountain bike trails until there was not any damp spots on the trail what so ever.

    April 1, 2013

    • Joel

      Mountain bike trail is OPEN right now, so it should be good for the weekend.

    We have 3 sites reserved in the campground by the lake. Look for the TOC banner to find us. I should be there with the banner between 5 and 6.

      Could you post the campsite numbers after you get there? I will be arriving after dark so it will be a bit tricky finding you otherwise. Thanks!

      April 3, 2013

    • Joel

      Thanks

      April 3, 2013

    I will be arriving between 7 and 8 since I don't get off work until 5. I'll have my own tent. Thanks.
