This park is on the shores of Granger Lake and some of the sites have nice views of the water. Some are shaded and some are not. Most sites are very spacious and are surrounded by lush green grass. Parking at each site is back-in, but is very large and easy to get into. Each site has a picnic table which is covered by a large and sturdy shade shelter. There is reliable 50/30/20 amp electric service, water, fire ring, and covered grill at each site. Restrooms and showers are a bit dated and were a bit dirty, probably due to several large groups using the park at the time. The campground was quiet the first 2 days, but became noisy when the skiers started blasting their stereo just off shore. No wifi but strong Verizon signal. There is a swimming area and boat ramp. The biggest downer came at the end of our visit, when we went to the dump station. Unbeknownst to us, the drain was full and/or clogged, and we had a big mess when we opened the valve to our black tank! And when we reported this to the gate attendant, she said it had happened a couple of weeks ago also! Park entrance hours are from 6:00am - 10:00pm.

Bathrooms horrible. Doors padlocked open all day and night for some reason.. don t know what though. Might be ok in the summer but not this time of year. Very dated and need a good clean. Sites are concrete and water and electric good.

So we live in N Austin. We wanted to get out of town, but not too far out, and somewhere other than Georgetown, for a different camping experience. We like wooded camp sites near lakes, with the potential for hiking explorations. We decided to try out Wilson H. Fox because of it's proximity and what it stated it offered. We stayed in camp site 8. We were worried it may be too close to site 10 and some of the other sites, and it may be for some. It's what's behind that counts. This site backs along Granger Lake, with wooded trees. The Army Corp of Engineers offer covered picnic tables and a fire pit with full hookup for electricity and water. There is also a dump station on site. I would say site 6 and 4 are very nice for privacy. There are bathrooms and playgrounds also available. During the warmer months, bring your boat, as the is also a boat ramp and pier available. The camp hosts were very nice, as were our neighboring campers. It was cold when we stayed, so we had the fire pit going. I wish there was more hiking. However, if you are into water activities, this would be ideal.
