Taylor Campground, on the banks of Granger Lake, is an excellent lakeside destination for families of all ages.
The park pleases nature lovers with its hiking trail and water skiers with its easily accessible boat dock. Anglers flock to Granger Lake because it is one of the top five crappie and white bass fishing destinations in central Texas.
Boating, hiking, hunting and wildlife viewing are all reasons visitors camp at Taylor. Hikers can enjoy the Comanche Bluff Trail, which loops around the campground and carries on in both directions along the southern side of the lake.
The campground has 48 sites, each with water and electric hookups. Showers and flush toilets provide a comfortable camping experience and a playground and boat dock in the park, make entertaining easy.
Taylor Park is located in the gently rolling hills of the Texas Blackland Prairie, 40 miles from Austin TX.
Granger Lake was formed by a dam built in 1980 for flood control. The lake is fed by the San Gabriel River and Willis Creek.
Several designated wildlife areas border the lake, including Pecan Grove Wildlife Area, San Gabriel Wildlife Area, Sore Finger Wildlife Area, and Willis Creek Wildlife Area. Take the kids to Sore Finger and find out how the area earned its name.

There are some really nice spots here. I love that your neighbors are not backed right up to you.
Only 30 amp electrical hookups, does have water, and no sewer connection. Great playground for kids. Covered picnic tables. We used our access card and only had to pay $13 per night.
The Taylor Park campgrounds bear Granger Lake are clean and convenient. The bathrooms/showers were clean, but only 1 toilet was working…and only 1 outside washbasin for dishes was working.
Each campground has a shade structure, picnic table, fire ring, and grill. There are also has a playground. We were rent camping, but there many RV campers. The campground hosts were very friendly and helpful.
It is about a 10 minute walk to the boat dock, where there are day use areas. If you want a spot right on the lake you should head to the other side of the lake at Willis Springs.
Nice park. We went to picnic and bird watch. Lots of birds! Swim area, fishing, hiking.
Usually fairly clean and quiet. Nice little beach area. You can paddle the lake to the river and paddle up it to the highway. Watch out for wallowing feral hogs. There's a trail that goes along the lake to a primitive camp. It's an out and back trail so keep an eye on the time. There are two historic bridges on site. Pics are of the river area.
