Thanks to all of you campers for my success, The Hideout is now totally electric. No more generator!

We have all the items you need for a successful camping experience. Throw your necessities in the back of the Kawasaki mule and enjoy a short ride to the hideout or drive to the campsite for a truly memorable campout.

Bruce’s Land

5 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents12 acres · Hawkins, TX
Our homestead is a few acres in East Texas, near Hawkins. The land has been untouched for about 30 years, maybe last used for cattle grazing. We're keeping the property as natural as possible, we live here off-grid and off-pipe. There’s a 17 acre lake that we share with neighbors. It’s full of bass, bluegill, crappie and catfish, we encourage catch and keep fishing since the lake could use a little fishing pressure. We also have a beaver pond, and resident beaver. Some of the wildlife we see regularly: fireflies, turtles, cardinals, bluejays, hummingbirds, kite birds, frogs, opossums, armadillos, beaver, river otter, road runners and rabbits. These plants live here too: Beautyberry, Dewberry, Pokeberry, Sparkleberry, Dogfennel, Dogwood, Yaupon Holly, Holly, Wax Myrtle, Sassafras , Lyreleaf Sage, Carolina Crane’s bill, Coral Honeysuckle, Western White Honeysuckle, Smooth Cat’s Ear, Daisy Fleabane, Prairie Onion, Mullein, Summer Grape, Water Lily. The entire water lily plant is edible, did you know? Swim, hang out, cool down on the small swimming dock. Canoe and kayak included! Based on shared availability, we have 1 two person canoe, and 3 kayaks for use on our lake free of charge. There are smaller size adult life jackets and oars/paddles. Bring your own life jackets for kids. Contrary to local rumor lol, we are not a “nudist resort”. But it is true that one of our campsites is very private, so one could dress any way they wanted while at that campsite. About the Bees Please do not bring or use any insect killer or insect repellent other than what you apply to your own body. We have several honey bee colonies living here and our neighbor keeps bees as well. For the safety and health of our bees, the use of man made insect killers or repellents on the ground, in the air or on the foliage is absolutely not allowed. One natural remedy is diatomaceous earth. Sprinkled on the ground, it does a good job at keeping ants and crawling creatures away. Brookshire's in Hawkins less than 4 miles away if you need supplies. Verizon, ATT users have cell coverage here, no signal for T-Mobile users. LGBTQ+ friendly.

The best camping near Daingerfield State Park guide

Overview

About

Daingerfield is known for its Cathedral of Trees, a majestic mix of pine, oak, maple, and dogwood trees, making it a top spot for fall colors in Texas. Enjoy swimming, paddling, boating, or fishing in the 80-acre Little Pine Lake, then hit one of two hiking trails to explore the scenery: the easy, 2.4-mile Rustling Leaves Trail that wraps around the lake or the moderate ,1.2-mile Mountain View Trail. The park hosts a robust calendar of ranger-led programs, including nature programs, kayaking lessons, and underwater discovery. Four campgrounds, several historic cabins, and a lodge allow visitors to spend the night.

Notable campgrounds

  • Best for large RVs: The Big Pine Campground can fit RVs up to 119 feet long while offering nice shade and easy access to Lake Daingerfield.
  • Best for hikers: The Mountain View Campground is right next to a network of trails, so hikers can get an early start right from camp.
  • Best for shade and seclusion: The Dogwood Campground features shady spots and a rustic vibe—reserve site 11, 27, or 28 for the most privacy.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. Plan ahead. All campsites can be reserved up to five months in advance, so make a reservation as soon as you know your dates, especially for the peak fall season.
  2. If your plans are flexible, try to visit during the week, during non-holiday periods, or in winter for fewer crowds. The park, lake, and campgrounds are open year-round.
  3. If visiting as part of a group, consider staying at the lodge, which can be reserved up to 12 months in advance. Cabins are also available for same-day walk-ups if they haven't been reserved ahead of time.

When to go

The park is a popular leaf-peeping destination, making fall one of the most popular times to visit—late October to early November bring peak fall colors. Summer is a good time to enjoy a cool dip in Lake Daingerfield, while spring means the area's hills are covered in wildflower blooms. From March to November, the park pavilion hosts dances to jukebox tunes, plus karaoke and live music on select weekends.

Know before you go

  • The park store sells souvenirs, snacks, fishing, and camping supplies.
  • Fishing licenses are not required when fishing from the shore or boat at the park. Fishing equipment rentals are available.
  • Paddle boat, canoe, kayak, and flat-bottom boat rentals are available year-round at the park store and on weekends from Memorial Day to Labor Day at the boathouse. 
  • Motor boats are allowed on the lake, but there is a 5 mph speed limit.
  • Pets, glass containers, and fishing are prohibited in the swimming area. Pets are allowed in the park but not inside any buildings, including the lodge and camping cabins.
