Another beautiful CCC park built in the 30's. Campsites had a mix of paved and unpaved drives. Medium size rigs might have issues with some of the sites in the Mountain View and Dogwood Campgrounds and large rigs should stick to the Big Pine Campground. Bathrooms must have recently been rebuilt as they look brand new and were immaculate.
Nice swim area that we took advantage of. One complaint, the 30 amp socket was installed upside down in our campsite. We camped at Daingerfield State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A beautiful peaceful setting. I don't think we would pay for the "lake" view again since only those campers directly next to it can really see it. We were across the street and the campers blocked our view. We would stay anywhere else in the park though as the sites were level, had full hookups and were so quiet and peaceful. The showers were large but no air conditioning to speak of. A bit warm in the summer. Just a lovely place though and we will definitely come back. We camped at Daingerfield State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for one night while heading west. Once we arrived It was so nice we would have stayed another night if there were space available. The Big Pine camping area really is big rig friendly. We were in a spot near the lake with a great view. The spot was nearly level on asphalt. The sites have a fire ring and aluminum picnic table. There are walking trails around the lake and from the camp sites to the swimming area. Due to the recent rain a couple of the sites were a bit muddy in places. We chose a site that was drier since we arrived early and most sites were still vacant. They assigned us a spot on check in and told us to call and let them know if we were in a different spot. We will definitely stay here again if in the area and will try to make it for more than one night. We camped at Daingerfield State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful setting, gorgeous lake and trees, nice trails. Big Pine loop is big rig friendly with large, mostly level pull through sites. The other camping areas have a few large campsites, but most are about 25 feet by 25 feet or smaller, and are not very level. All sites have asphalt pads. Very few people were there will we were there, so it was pretty quiet except for some traffic noise from the nearby highway. The restrooms are in great shape and very clean. WIFI is available at headquarters and the park store, but the signal is weak. Verizon service was strong 4G however. As far a television, we could only pick up two stations, ABC and Fox out of Shreveport. There is a fishing pier, cleaning station, and there are canoes, kayaks, and peddle boats for rent.

Daingerfield SP is a very pretty, heavily wooded, small park consisting of 507 acres surrounding a beautiful 80 acre lake. The park has 58 total campsites with only 10 being big rig friendly pull-throughs. When you book with Texas Parks and Wildlife, you are guaranteed a type of site, but not a particular site. I booked a premium pull-through site in Big Pine camping area a week in advance. We arrived mid-week, mid-afternoon and found only one pull-through site available. Several of the 10 pull-through sites contained smaller travel trailers. I don't know how the park handles that. (Would they have asked one to move and give us spot if all had been full?) I had hoped for one of the five lakeside sites, but none were open. After hiking the lakeside trail, we saw that thick trees and brush obscured much of the view of the lake even from the lakeside sites. I thought the hiking trails could use some signs and some benches needed refurbishing, but we did enjoy the hiking. The one public restroom I was in was large and spotlessly clean. The rate was $25 per night, but there is also a $4 per person, per day entrance fee. It is a nice park, but we probably wouldn't go back. We camped at Daingerfield State Park in a Motorhome.

Love this campground. Need to book early if you have large rig as there are limited large sites. We have camped here many times and always love it. Camping under trees. Great camp fire areas when there is not a burn ban. Fire wood available at office. Exact nightly rate may be different as we use park pass with discounts and free nights.

We just purchased our 5th wheel after years of saving for a truck and a camper. We chose this campground as our first trip out, even though we hadn't ever been here before. We LOVED this campground. It was kept very clean (the bathrooms and the shower was very nice). We stayed in the "Big Pine" loop, which has 10 pull through spots that are very big. Our first night we stayed in spot #1 which was very private looking towards the woods and very close to the bathrooms. Our second night, most people left and we moved to spot #6 which is on the very end, lakeside, and very private. It has direct (private) access to the lake (I sat on a lawn chair next to my own private area of the lake) and also the 2.5 mile path around the lake. Our spot was surrounding mostly by fully mature pine trees and some deciduous trees (no leaves this time of year). It was a nice large site and best of all, we didn't have to level at all in spot #6! I was very impressed and happy with this campground. I wish it was closer to home so we could come on the weekends! We camped at Daingerfield State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice campground and park, clean with friendly staff. On map, middle section of 10 pull thru sites is going to be big rig friendly, if your over 30' and these are full your choices will be limited to about 3 more sites. Playground consists of swings and slide only. Nice views of lake from point with swimming. Park also offers hiking trails. Will come back! We camped at Daingerfield State Park in a Motorhome.
This is one of our all time favorite Texas state parks. We've been coming to the park for decades. We love the peace and serenity the park offers. We RVed there with a group of 20 from our church and came down to the park to cook for the group. Last year the park went through a total renovation and improved the infrastructure. Many of the roads have been repaved and smoothed out and all new restroom/shower facilities have been built. The park's staff did an incredible job renovating the park but keeping the "character" of the park intact and not changing it. My wife and I can't say enough good about Daingerfield State Park. Jefferson, one of our favorite Texas cities, is a short 30 minute drive from the park. We camped at Daingerfield State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park is a very clean, well kept park. The restrooms have recently been redone and are very nice. Small lake provides fishing and boating. Many nature trails throughout the park provide ample opportunities to explore nature. My kids love it! We camped at Daingerfield State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We've been RV'ing at Daingerfield State Park for decades now, starting out tent camping and finally in our present travel trailer. We were wondering how the year's total renovations were going to affect the "character" of the park. The new renovations in the park are fantastic. The sites in Big Pine are now very level and all sites in the park have full hookups. During the renovation process, all the old bathrooms/showers were torn down and replaced with newly built ones. Daingerfield State Park is truly a very special destination for us. We camped at Daingerfield State Park in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here the weekend after the 4th of July, just after the park had reopened on (July 1st) from their major renovation project. They have built new shower/restroom facilities in all the camping areas and have added full hook-ups to most of the RV campsites (including the Dogwood and Mountain View sites). Previously, the full hook-ups were only at the pull-through sites (Big Pine). Unfortunately, the newest full hookup sites are very short, so longer RVs will be difficult and next to impossible to accommodate. Keep in mind these were formerly tent campsites many years ago so you are parking an RV in what used to be the parking space for your car. These new full hookup sites are very sloped. Be prepared to use many leveling blocks. The shade trees are wonderful and the lots are spaced fairly far apart. We used the swimming beach and went to the new camp store. It has all been completely renovated. There are paddle boats and canoes for rent on the small lake. We could barely get an AT&T cell phone signal so forget about using an iPhone here. We enjoyed our stay and plan to visit this beautiful park again. I rated this a 9 due to the extremely sloped sites and limited space to park a tow vehicle.

This was our second stay here. The first time we were evacuating from Hurricane Katrina. This time we were here on business and the weather turned cold. It snowed several inches and we lost power. It was not a problem because of our generator. Actually quite an adventure. The maintenance people quickly removed downed trees and limbs and made the park serviceable. The pull through sites are a bit tight for a 42' motorhome, but very workable. Probably too many trees for satellite reception, over the air had several channels. Beautiful park, we will stay here again. We camped at Daingerfield State Park in a Motorhome.

Daingerfield State Park is not the fanciest park in the Texas State Park system, but it is the park where we go to get away from it all and relax. We started camping in this park when we had a tent. We stayed 5 days over the New Year's holiday and didn't want to leave when we checked out on Sunday. It's been several years since we've stayed at the park and all was the same upon our arrival. The park was just like we had remembered it, perfect in all aspects. We camped at Daingerfield State Park in a Travel Trailer.
