Park Alerts ( 7 Alerts )

  • Restroom Closed for Repairs: The Boardwalk Picnic Area Restrooms are closed for repairs. Please use the Boat House Picnic Area facilities.

  • Hiking Caution: A hiking hazard has been discovered on the Covered Bridge Trail near the Covered Bridge Parking Lot. Use the utmost caution when navigating the trail as there's a large hole in the trail. We hope to have the hazard removed as soon as possible.

  • The Maze Picnic Area Restrooms are closed for renovations. Please use the Boathouse Picnic Area facilities.

  • General Firewood Quarantine: Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture has enacted a quarantine order for untreated firewood of any kind coming into the state. Any firewood brought into the state must be kiln dried, heat treated, fumigated, and/or USDA Certified.

    To protect the high quality and native character of our State Parks from exotic invasive species DCNR highly encourages all visitors to:

    • burn/buy locally cut firewood (within 25 miles)

    • BURN ALL firewood brought from another area. Do not leave it. Do not take it with you.

    • Encourage friends and neighbors not to move firewood

    • Do not remove firewood from a Spotted Lanternfly Quarantine Area. Contact the PA Department of Agriculture, www.agriculture.pa.gov and search on the keyword Spotted Lantern Fly for current quarantine information.

  • Contrary to the information on Google, Pennsylvania state parks are open every day of the year. Day use areas close at dusk. Park offices are open specific hours. Pools, beaches, and campgrounds are open specific seasons.
  • If you will be using a navigation system (GPS) to find Tyler State Park, type in 101 Swamp Road, Newtown. If you just type Tyler State Park, you may be directed to the wrong side of the park which is off limits to vehicles.
  • Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), remotely piloted vehicles (RPV) or unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), all commonly referred to as DRONES, their commercial and general recreational use is not permitted in PA State Parks. Drones create a variety of safety, wildlife impacts and privacy issues. Therefore, they are prohibited in Tyler State Park and all other PA State Parks.
