Boasting over $5 million dollars in renovations over the last six years, Daingerfield State Park is home to some of the best park amenities available today. If you're looking to get out and enjoy the water with your canine, you can rent a bunch of different water-faring vessels for the day. This includes paddle boats, canoes, tandem kayaks, and even flat-bottomed fishing boats. Boat rentals are available year-round, although winter kayaking tends to only be for braver souls. Paddleboard rentals are also available from the beginning of spring break all the way through Labor Day.
Daingerfield State Park is host to a robust Ranger program, with classes running throughout the year. The CCC or Civilian Conservation Corps has tended to run these programs, historically. This is almost certainly due to the fact that the CCC pretty much single-handedly brought parks and park maintenance to the American forefront during the Depression. Since then, areas in which these storied parks brought much-needed relief have tended to maintain public outreach and development.
The over five miles of hiking trails are all available for you and your canine to explore, provided they stay on-leash. All of these trails have regular dog stands with baggies and trash cans so that you can help keep the park pristine while enjoying the view with your companion. These trails also host several local species of wildflowers that are particularly beautiful come springtime.
If you're looking for what Millenials call "glamping," Daingerfield State Park has you covered. There are 50 RV sites available for rental, all with full RV hookups to ensure a comfortable stay. Dogs are allowed in these areas, as well as the more traditional campsites as long as they stay on a leash. The 80 available tent sites also host full plumbing and are immediately adjacent to both the public bathrooms and paid showers.
