Daingerfield, TX— Daingerfield State Park is the perfect place to experience all fall has to offer! During November, leaves of sweetgums and maples reach their glorious peak. The park is known throughout Texas as one of the top must-see locations for fall colors. The park has been featured in Texas Highways and Texas Parks and Wildlife magazines on numerous occasions for its awe-inspiring beauty.
During November, the park will host fifteen programs focused on learning about our natural world and family fun. Learn how to craft meals utilizing Dutch ovens like the pioneers. The park will conduct Ranger-led hikes around the lake which wind through the “Cathedral of the Trees” as the trees reach their peak color spender. Learn about mammals of Daingerfield State Park with our Skin, Skulls and Tracks program. Also during the month, you will have a chance to explore your inner-artist with “Art-in-the-Park” programs focusing on fall and Thanksgiving themes. To bring each fun-filled Saturday to a fitting conclusion, we will host two karaoke Dances with a DJ and two classic Dances with songs from our vintage jukebox. Our November dances have an added attraction of a roaring fire in the historic fireplace throughout the evenings. All Dances run from 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
Camp for the weekend in a tent or RV. Stay in one of our vintage cabins or the Bass Lodge. Rent the Dining Hall for a family or business gathering. Bring a picnic and enjoy the newly enhanced views from our day-use area. Fish off our pier or rent a boat and try your luck throughout the lake. Crappie, bluegill, bass, catfish and chain pickerel are commonly caught. Hike our trails or just relax under a giant shade tree recharging your soul!
