Daingerfield State Park
In 1642, an expedition known as the Moscoso expedition, part of the DeSoto command, passed through this area where Daingerfield State Park is now located. Nearly 100 years later, the French established a trading post here. It was later moved to a Caddo Indian Village. Immigrants began settling in the area in 1814 and soon industrial centers developed such s sawmills, woodworking plants, and coke oven.
In 1930, the people decided to preserve their woodland by establishing the park. In 1935, the Civilian Conservation Corps began construction. In 1938, with three years of labor completed, the park had an 80 acre lake and beautiful surroundings. Recently renovated, the 551 acre park offers many recreational facilities such as swimming, boating and fishing. Daingerfield State Park is a fantastic setting for photographers, weddings, and other outdoors events. The lake provides good fishing for channel catfish, largemouth bass, crappie, and pike.
