Description

The fourteen tent-only sites of Red Oak Campground are nestled at the southern edge of the lake. Though these sites aren’t as glamped-up as others (which can definitely be a plus!) you’ll find a fishing pier, picnic area, restroom and shower facilities nearby. Find similar sites in the Dogwood Ridge, Hickory Hollow, and Sumac Bend areas.

Tyler State park is a short drive east of Dallas and worth it. The lake is springfed and beutiful. It is also cheap to rent canoes or kayaks and explore on the water. The Red Oak Campground has no electricity, but the bathrooms and showers are located at the entrance to this area. Sites 126 and 124 are larger and have easy access and views of the lake.

Stayed in #119 during an unseasonably warm January. Not as nice views as 126 or 124 but provided some distance from neighbors and still close to restroom. Trail around the lake is nice as were park personnel. We could occasionally hear noise from the cabins across the lake from site 119, but it was really minor.
