We visited three of the four parks on the banks of Granger Lake; Willis Creek Park, Friendship Park, and Wilson H. Fox Park. As far as parks go, they were average Army Corps of Engineers Parks. They weren't spectacular— partially because of the serious drought conditions, and partially because Granger Lake is a man-made reservoir on the San Gabriel River.... More

Second time in a year camping there. NOTE:The ladies at the Lake are way more helpful than some others on the reservation line. Group spot was closed for some reason so we set up in the primative area. It is pittifully dry there,cracks all in the ground from the lack of rain. Hope they get some decent rains so it... More

We visit this lake almost every weekend! We like to fish and ride around in the boat and this lake so far has not been very crowded. There are some people that will ski or pull a tube and get too close to you while you are fishing which is rude and inconsiderate - but other than that we have... More

We have been looking for a lake in the austin area that is at least somewhat full and not busy. I knew Granger Lake was in the area but i always thought it was just a fishing lake and not for recreation. I was wrong. I have been to most of the Central Texas lakes except for this one. The... More

Granger has several campgrounds. Sites are flat, paved and widely spaced with nice shelters. Restrooms are unheated and breezy. Very little privacy in showers. If the contracted mowing crew is there, lock up small stuff. We had some witnessed theft of fruit and hardware. The lake was full this spring (2014) and boats were out enjoying it. Volunteer Staff was... More

Campsites very close to the water with great views. Spacious also! Bathrooms were clean and water temp at the faucets were comfortable. Very quiet and nice trails by the water. Some construction across from #15 but i don't think it's gonna last very much longer and it didn't damper any of our fun at all. Fire rings appeared to be... More

Granger Lake now has a must see attraction. Last winter, Whoopers (Whooping Cranes) began to over winter at Granger. Bring your camera, binocculars and lawn chair for a spectacle. Best place to watch is at the campground on the NW side of the lake. No fee in the winter.

Granger Lake is very pretty, and in the park (which has a $4 parking fee) there are many picnic tables, each under a private pavilion and also several grills. The best part is that there was hardly anyone there. Lake Georgetown has a nicer beach, however, if you want to avoid the crowds, Lake Granger is the place to go.

Lake Georgetown is a lot prettier. Nice trails there. Better views. Granger has good fishing in the spring when white bass are running. Shallow lake, hard to get out of the wind
