Lakeview Campsites
Tyler State park
Tyler, TX

Come join the Scubadillo Dive Club for a fun-filled "fiesta" day of underwater and land contests, along with a delicious fajita dinner, on May 2 at beautiful Tyler State Park. The Cinco de Mayo-themed event (formerly the Luau event) will be centered at the Lakeview campground area and conclude with an evening campfire social.

The day's activities will start at Noon with a scuba diving "poker run" contest at the park's beach area on the 64-acre lake. The park also offers canoe and paddleboat rentals on the lake, plus many hiking and biking trails in the piney woods.

The action continues when land-based games begin around 2 PM, followed by the awarding of prizes and the dinner at approximately 5 PM. Dillo's are encouraged to bring their favorite dips and desserts to the dinner, as well as their favorite beverages (BYOB).

Activities and dinner are free to paid Scubadillo members and $5 to guests.

The Cinco de Mayo 'Dillo party can either be a day-trip event (approximately 90 miles from Dallas) or many 'Dillos will be camping at the park or staying nearby in Tyler hotels.
