Daingerfield State Park is located in Morris County, southwest of Texarkana.

The area’s diverse wildlife, desirable climate, and rich soils contributed to the settlement of the area during both prehistoric and historic periods. In 1542, a Spanish expedition led by Moscoso passed through the area. Almost 200 years later, the French established a trading post nearby and immigrants began to settle the area. The Civil War brought further development, transforming the area into an iron industrial center for factories producing guns and other items, as well as woodworking plants and cotton mills.

The land for the park was deeded in 1935 by private owners and opened in 1938. The original improvements were made by the Civilian Conservation Corps. Today the park is a 506.913-acre recreational area, including an 80-surface-acre lake.
