A treasure of the Texas Hill Country, Lake Brownwood State Park is a 537.5-acre stretch of lush grounds. At the center lies none other than Lake Brownwood. Many structures in use today were constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the early 1930’s. Activities include picnicking, camping, hiking, motor boating, water skiing, fishing, nature study, swimming (in an unsupervised swimming area), and bird watching. Facilities include cabins, lodges, tent sites, and RV spaces located at 200 State Highway Park Road 15 Lake Brownwood, TX 76801. The Group Recreation Hall is a favorite for reunions and events, with a rooftop balcony overlooking the Lake.
