Lake Brownwood State Park

200 State Highway Park Road 15

Lake Brownwood State Park, located in Brown County, is 537.5 acres acquired by deed from the Brown County Water Improvement District No. 1 in 1934. The park was opened in 1938.

Near the geographical center of Texas, the park is situated on Lake Brownwood, a 7,300-surface-acre reservoir created by damming Pecan Bayou, which is a tributary of the Colorado River. Many structures in use today were constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the early 1930s from timber and native rock found in the park.

Unfortunately on our recent stay the lake is at an all time low so the water was on the warm side and the lake bottom was super soft when trying to walk out. However the park itself is very nice. We stayed in one of the cabins for the weekend and it was very cozy and accommodating. The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. It is super convenient that they sell ice at the gate. The cabins are air conditioned with pretty comfortable beds. Kitchens and Bathrooms are small and dated....but this is camping....or better yet "glamping". We will be back!

Lake Brownwood was absolutely wonderful. The water was clean and inviting. We had fun on a boat for most of the day but also got two enjoy one of the beaches and recreation areas. The on the real difficulty was that there is no place to purchase drinks or food if need be. For that to have to drive out of the park. The police officers Patrol the lake regularly and ensure that everyone is complying with all applicable laws.

Rangers were nice when we arrived and helped my gf and I pick the beat cabin that was secluded and close to the lake to fish. I wish I had pictures because the cabin was very clean and nice but I broke that old phone and lost most of those pictures. We stayed two nights and both nights we could hear bobcats crying, one even came close when we were fishing late at night on the first day. I'd definitely stay here again. The cabin was cheap and we caught 4 small bass and a good size long nose gar.

Lake Brownwood State Park is a good park. The park rangers are helpful and friendly. The campgrounds are decent. West Texas scenery, in general, is unremarkable and this is no different. Lots of mesquite trees and brown grass. Thankfully there is some oak trees mixed in. Access to the lake is the best part. There are several great places for family gatherings and picnics. Fishing off the dock for crappie was excellent. The campsites were level and generously sized. However, the sites weren’t mowed and there was grass almost a foot tall. The restrooms were clean. If you enjoy fishing this is a nice campground.

Love the state park. There's so much stuff to do besides swimming. If you don't have a fishing license you can go here to fish without getting a ticket. There's a hiking trail. Its so beautiful, so much too see. Its always clean.
