Park Entry:  Each person is responsible for park entry fees. They strongly recommend obtaining day pass on line prior to arrival to guarantee entry. Go to Reserve America

Food & Drink:  Bring your own refreshments and shareable delights.  (Discretion is necessary for certain beverages.) We plan to have a meal share for Saturday dinner, the club will be providing a brisket dinner, please bring a potluck side and Sunday breakfast will be continental with coffee. Sites have electricity and water for preparing your other meals.

Saturday Events:  We’ve made plans to participate with the Scubadillos in a U/W Easter Egg Hunt (with prizes) at the swim beach. This will start en-masse at approximately 2pm, followed by prize awarding at nearby day use area. Then, Rebels will have dinner at Lakeview campsites around 4pm. Afterwards, Scubadillos will join us for dessert and reverie.

Dive Conditions: This time of year the lake is still cool but warmer than deep lakes, Tyler lake is barely 20+ feet deep, but a 3 mill full wetsuit is recommended. Scuba Steve's has airfills a short 12 mile drive into town. The visibility can vary based on rain but generally pretty good and is populate with a lot of bass, turtles and other aquatic life.
