Can you bring your own kayak to Tyler State Park?
There is a small dam and walkway bridge just below the boat launch, which was popular for fishing and swimming (despite the no swimming sign). This isn’t a full drive down boat launch – if you are bringing your own canoe or kayak you are going to have to carry it down a grassy strip of land.

There are no alligators, and we did no see any snakes. We even asked about snakes and they are very rare there. There is a roped off area to swim at that was very nice.
Is canoeing harder than kayaking?
While a canoe is undoubtedly harder to capsize than a kayak — though they’re both pretty stable, honestly — a kayak has the advantage of being able to be righted in the event of a rollover. In general, canoes are wider and more stable than kayaks, but kayaks are faster and easier to maneuver.

Do kayaks tip over easily?
Kayaks are generally safe to use and hardly tip over. For example, it’s extremely hard to tip over when paddling with a recreational kayak on a relatively calm river — unless you really try too hard. But whitewater (rapid water) paddling with an ultra-light or sea kayak comes with a very high risk of the boat flipping.
Is a sit on or sit in kayak better?
All these features make the sit- on -top kayak a great choice for nervous paddlers, for warm environments and for paddling with kids who love to swim. The downside to sit-on-top kayaks is that you’re guaranteed to get wet while paddling, while sit-inside kayaks allow you to stay dry.
Can I kayak with a baby?
Kayaks are not practical with a baby. Rafts can haul lots of gear and people but are slow, heavy, and often have standing water on the floor, which means no dry place for an infant to hang out other than in your arms. Canoes, on the other hand, are practically made for babies.
