Daingerfield State Park located 35 miles East of Lake Bob Sandlin State Park is in Morris County just Southwest of Texarkana. This small park (506 acres) hugs the shores of the small (80 acre) picturesque Lake Daingerfield. The loblolly pines at a height of 100 feet plus dominate the landscape. Spring brings blankets of wildflowers to the rolling hills while fall bursts with the reds and golds of the sweetgum, oak and maple trees showcased against the dark contrast of evergreens. Photographers delight in this quiet scenic park. In season visitors rent canoes or paddleboats from the concessionaire and quietly float the cool clear waters of this tranquil, no wake (5mph) lake. The day use area is impressive with it’s stately bathhouse dated to the park’s opening in 1938, a swimming beach beckons, a swim platform sits right off shore and a playground with slides and swings is here to be enjoyed. The Civilian Conservation Corp built cabins and a group lodge in the 1930’s. These have been recently renovated and should be reserved well in advance. 30 campsites offer water and electricity with an additional 10 large pull-thru lakeside sites with full hookups. Sites #6-10 offer direct access to the shore in a pleasant private setting. We stayed in site #8 and enjoyed views of the water through the pines. There is primitive tent camping at the Cedar Ridge Loop and water only sites at the Mountain View area. A trailhead is located in this hilly heavily wooded area. The entire 2.5 miles connects to the hike around the lake. The facilites here are older but kept clean and maintained. We loved this park for it’s peaceful serene setting and natural beauty.
