Overview

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.

Natural Features:

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.

Recreation:

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.

Facilities:

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.

Nearby Attractions:

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.
