  • It looks awsome.I just wasent welcomed their,. But God Bless all.
  • One of our favorites, Daingerfield SP is a beautiful park with tall trees and maintained underbrush. Every campsite is at least 50% shade. Hiking trails are well maintained and the one around the lake takes about an hour to complete. The lake, entirely within the park, is one of the best swimming lakes I've come across with a nice sandbar to stand on, or you can swim out to the platform and do cannon balls of the edge. One last mention is the boat rentals, you can rent canoes, kayaks or paddle boats to take this park in at your leisure. A great park for families, I would highly recommend you check it out, you will not be disappointed.
