Overview

Wilson H. Fox Park attracts a variety of campers looking for a fun-filled escape. In springtime, the campground is a colorful place covered in a blanket of wildflowers. In the hot summer months, there's no place like a lakeside campsite with a swimming beach, fishing dock and two ramps to set sail or paddle out on the lake.

Natural Features:

The campground is on the shores of Granger Lake, with the gently rolling hills of the Texas Blackland Prairie as a backdrop.

Granger Lake is fed by the San Gabriel River and Willis Creek, and was formed in 1980 upon completion of the 16,000 foot long dam.

Recreation:

Whether it's sailing, swimming or water skiing, visitors have many options for fun out on the water. Fish for catfish, white bass or crappie.

Just beyond the park, archery hunting for feral hogs is allowed year-round.

Facilities:

All sites have water and electric hookups, a covered picnic table and stand up grill. Two playgrounds, two boat ramps and beach access are also onsite.

Nearby Attractions:

The Pecan Grove Wildlife Area is just east of Wilson H. Fox and sits below the dam. It provides plenty of opportunities for wildlife spotting, as well as a view above the dam. San Gabriel and Sore Finger Wildlife Areas are also worth a visit.
