Description

Located directly on Taylor Lake (as its name makes clear), Taylor Lake campground is one of our favorites in the bunch. Boasting a modest 4 family sites, the campground is accessible by both boat and car. It is only 2 miles from the entrance station, and you can get there by taking a quick left after entering the park then taking a right at the junction where you will see the campground sitting on the bluffs. This site is offers incredible views with a boat ramp and the normal amenities. We highly recommend site #4 if you can get your hands on it, but watch out, all of them go pretty fast during peak season.
