5 Reasons to visit Daingerfield State Park in Texas

Daingerfield State Park

This 501-acre park in East Texas has clear water from spring-fed lake. The location seems to be remote but more than 75,000 people visit this park every year. This is located near Texarkhana in Morris county, Texas.

We have covered this park as part of our trip to Caddo Lake state park and Talimena Scenic drive

Here are 6 wonderful reasons to visit Daingerfield State Park:

1. Cabins

Who doesn't love to stay in historic cabins by the lake and enjoy fishing on a weekend?

These historic cabins even have AC, fridge, bathroom and kitchen. So, just remember this place if you want to lose yourself in pine wood forest for a weekend.

There are also campsites, and picnic tables.

2. Hiking

With 2 kids we always look for options to hike and get some family time on vacations. 

The hiking trails can take us through pinewoods, and dogwoods. There are 2 trails - 2.4 miles Rustling leaves trail is moderate and the most popular. It might take around 2 hrs to complete the hike. 

1.2 miles Mountain view trail is challenging and take you to the highest spot in the area with a good view of pine covered bluffs.

Little Pine interpretive center, Scenic view , Bridge and CCC dam are some of the interesting spots on trails.

3. Boating, Paddling

There are many paddle boats, paddle boards, canoes, kayaks and flat-bottom boats for rent on the lake. Paddles and lifejackets included. Rentals are available whole year around.

The water is very clear and boating on the lake is wonderful.

4. Fishing

We haven't learned to fish yet, but this park is a great place for fishing. You can fish crappie, bass, catfish, perch or chain pickerel. The park has a fishing pier.

No fishing license needed to fish here!

5. Area Attractions

Caddo Lake state park is around 50 mins and is an interesting place to watch bald cypress trees and trees adorned with Spanish moss which add to the mystic beauty. Jefferson is a historic town also popular for their haunted tours.

Tyler state park is around 1 hr 15 mins and the drive is scenic with shaded 100 foot pine trees. 

We spent around 3 hrs in the park. We loved the lake, the water was clear and the fall colors were amazing. We visited the park around second week of November, still a few fall colors retained.

We hiked the rustling leaves trail, walked near the fishing pier and spent some time watching the fall colors and the scenic lake.

So, that's it about our trip to Daingerfield State Park. 

Until next time,

Pin it for later!
