Cathedral of Trees

Tall trees reach for the sky in the north­east corner of Texas. Explore life in the forest at Daingerfield State Park as you wander the trails, paddle Little Pine Lake, or relax at your campsite.

Things to Do
On land, you can hike, go birding or geocaching, study nature, have a picnic or set up camp. In the 80-acre lake, you can swim, boat or paddle, and fish. Rent one of our historic cabins, or reserve our group hall or pavilion for your next group gathering.

Explore the East Texas Pineywoods, wandering through our cathedral of trees – pines, oaks, dogwoods and more. Enjoy the Rustling Leaves Trail, a 2.4-mile easy hike around the lake. Work a little harder on the 1.2-mile Mountain View Trail, which takes you to the highest point in the park.

Fish for crappie, bass, catfish, perch or chain pickerel.

The park has a fishing pier and boat ramp. Borrow fishing equipment to use in the park at the Boathouse. Bring your own bait or purchase worms at our park store.

You do not need a license to fish from shore or boat in the park.

Boating & Paddling
Rent a boat or bring your own. We allow motors, but the lake has a 5-m.p.h. speed limit.

We rent paddle boats, paddle boards, canoes, kayaks (single and tandem) and flat-bottom boats. Life jackets and paddles are included. Rentals are available year-round at the park store, or Saturdays and Sundays from Memorial Day to Labor Day at the Boathouse.

Staying overnight
Choose from two types of campsites: water-only tent sites or full hookup sites (back-in or pull-through).

If you are not into roughing it, reserve a historic cabin. Two cabins are four-person, one is six-person, and the Bass Lodge sleeps up to 15 people. All cabins have bathrooms and kitchens.
