The City of Tyler operates five boat ramps and several public parks on the shores of these lakes. The Lake Tyler Marina, located on Lake Tyler West in Concession Area #1, charges a small fee to launch; all other ramps are free. Fritz & Opal’s Barge, on the water near Old #2, offers fishing access for a fee, and bank access is available at several locations. Two public ramps and a county-maintained boat launch offer access to Lake Tyler East. Primitive camping is allowed in all city parks on a first-come, first-serve basis.
