Daingerfield State Park, in Morris County southwest of Texarkana, is a 506.913-acre recreational area (including an 80-surface-acre lake), deeded in 1935 by private owners and opened in 1938. The original improvements were made by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). This area was the center of the iron industry in Texas; nearby is Lone Star Steel Co. 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 sweet gum, 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.
