On the nature trail in Daingerfield State park, if you feel like taking a hike off of the trail you will find a spectacular small waterfall. Depending on the amount of rain we receive will depend on the amount of water you will see in the falls.

Daingerfield State Park, in Morris County southwest of Texarkana, is a 550.89-acre recreational area (including an 80-surface-acre lake), deeded in 1935 by private owners and opened in 1938.
Nature of the Area
Springtime brings breath-taking bouquets throughout the park's rolling hills when dogwoods, redbuds, and wisteria vines burst into bloom. Although northeast Texas is known for pines, each fall the park is a delight as sweetgum, oak, and maple trees produce dazzling shades of red and gold, offering a stark contrast to those famous evergreens. Wildlife Observation and Photography: white-tailed deer, tame ducks and geese, raccoons, armadillos, and squirrels. Fish in the lake include crappie, perch, catfish, bass, and chain pickerel.

Daingerfield State Park is located near Gilmer, Mount Pleasant and Pittsburg

January 12 BIG BASS by Earl Timmons

July 7 Best fall camping by D. LaRue
park review stars; one to five This is a beautiful state park and the staff is wonderful. Love to camp here in the fall.
May 27 A great park
park review stars; one to five With all of the fixing up at the park it seems that they needed to work on the swimming area and on the access to the swimming area for people with disability.They have trouble going up and down the steps and getting into the water. My mother who used to love going swimming at the park no longer goes there to swim because she can not climb the steps or step into the lake with out hurting her self the park has nice things but poor access for the disabled or for very small children. Maby they can work on these things.
