Dangerfield State Park

Like everyone eles, we have our favorite parks. Ours happens to be Dangerfield State Park. It is located 11 miles from Dangerfield, Texas. It is in the piney woods of east Texas. We both agree it is the best state park we have visited by far. It is acouple of hours from Dallas. the Staff is always warm and friendly.

Daingerfield State Park, in Morris County southwest of Texarkana, is a 506.913-acre recreational area (including an 80-surface-acre lake).

This area was the center of the iron industry in Texas; nearby is Lone Star Steel Co.
Activities: The park offers picnicking; camping; boating (5 MPH speed limit); fishing; swimming in an unsupervised swimming area; hiking; and nature study. A seasonal concession (March - October) rents pedal boats and canoes.

The park is very clean. The atmosphere is wonderful. The park is full of large mature trees which provides wonderful shade. We have camped at this park year around. It is our favorite place to spend Thanksgiving. They have full hookups for large rigs and nice level sites. They have a small no wake lake and a walking trail.
