I'm planning a trip to Taylor in the beginning of August. I have some camping related questions that I'm hoping someone can answer:

1.) Are there a lot of available spots?
2.) Do the camping spots fill quickly on weekends in August?
3.) Are the spots near the water?
4.) Are you limited to camping or are their cabins?

Any other tips for specific campgrounds or areas are definately welcome!

Thanks!
JOE

Taylor is open camping meaning you can camp any where you want so its not very crowded,And there are cabins for rent pretty close to the water.

Thanks, esox!

Do you have a link for the cabins? I've conducted some fruitless google searches for cabins there.

No no no. It used to be open camping but not anymore. They quit that so the vegetation would restore. I don't know if you mean about the primitive camping though, which is quite a ways from the water. (its actually maybe 1/2 mile away or so.) There are camp sites now. I was just there about half a month ago. There are maybe about 30 spots in the campground I was at (near where the taylor river dumps in). Nothing is that close to the water but close enough. They filled up fast too. The camp spots kinda sucked and you had to pay 12 bucks to camp which was a ripoff. There are cabins but you should make reservations.

Yeah you are right about the primitive camping. It definitely is more quiet, the only drawback is you are fairly far from the reservoir.

wraith there are lots of dispersed sites along texas creek and up the taylor river. Last time we went we camped up the texas creek road and were about 5 minutes away from having lines in the water.

You will however half to deal with a few atvers unless you want to go further up the river.
