This morning we decided to drive over to the Daingerfield State Park to see what renovations had been done during last years closure of the park. Daingerfield State Park is a 550+ acre recreational area (including an 80-surface-acre lake), deeded in 1935 by private owners and opened in 1938. It has four camping loops, three for RV's and one what appears to be for tent sites. The park is heavily wooded and quite a ways off the main highway. I believe finding a satellite signal would be just about impossible. I also can see where at nighttime this area could be pitch black.
The park is about 15 miles from us and we have used the faculty several times since we moved up to this area. These visits have been day visits only as we felt the park was not big rig friendly for staying over night. We were hoping the renovation would have included adding larger sites for big rigs.
Upon our arrival at the park entrance office we were greeted by a very polite young lady. We told her we wanted to tour the area to see what renovations were done last year and if they added larger sites for big rigs. She informed us they did not make any changes to the sites other than repaving them and adding sewer hookup to a lot of the sites.
While driving through the park we saw evidence where our drought last year had done a number on the trees. There were a lot of trees down throughout the the area. You could see evidence where they had been cutting some of them up for clearing them out.
The Big Pine camping sites were all pull through with FHUP and what we could tell there only three of the ten sites in this loop would accommodate a big rig like ours. The other two loops, Dogwood and Mountain View sites, were all backend sites. I didn't see anything in these two loops that would accommodate our rig.
We may just plan a weekend getaway trip just to check out the parking accommodation. Here are some photos of this park.
Until next time. . . .MtnAire Travlers.
