We stumbled upon Brownwood State Park at the beginning of our road trip. We'd planned to travel about 200 miles that day but ended up doing only about 50 because we found that there was a vacancy in a lakeside cabin. At only $70 for the night, a view of the lake, great rustic charm, sunset, and sunrise, it was... More

Park was fairly crowded for a weekday stay. Lake is almost full for the first time in years. Restrooms were clean and park was in good condition. Staff was friendly as usual.

Hubby and I go twice a year to a different state park. Lake Brownwood State Park was one of the most beautiful we've been too. We went mid-April for our 4 year anniversary trip. Shelters were nice, we got one of the few with shade. DO NOT MISS the Lake Side Trail, best trail we've been on in any park... More

As of right now, March 2015, the water levels are low, but they still have a boat ramp open. They have a fishing dock and lots of places to fish from land. A good 3 mile hiking trail, that is not too hard and a couple more that are pretty easy also. The swimming area is pretty large, but you... More

This park is a gem. The foot trails are compelling and nice, and the new mountain bike trail looks great! It is about three miles long, and from what I could see of it, it looked delightful; curvy, smooth, and fast. We walked down to the lake and it was a bit low, but it was surprisingly clean and fresh... More

Customer service made wrong date of reservation of cabins, but was very helpful to correct it later. Staff was very friendly. There're several trails around the lake. We stayed in one bed cabins for two nights during Christmas time. The park has very few visitors. It's quiet and cold. The cabins were simple and clean. But it showed its age.... More

Spent Christmas at Lake Brownwood. I was hoping for snow, but it was OK we ended up with perfect weather. I don't think that that it mattered that it wasn't summer there was a couple of things to do and it was nice to have the park to ourselves along with a few other families. We rented a cabin, our...

About 2 hours west of Fort Worth is Lake Brownwood state park. This park is different than most of the other ones near us as it has cabins to rent. We, and another family, rented the Fisherman's Lodge. It was great for us with plenty of room. There were 6 small bedrooms, each with a double bed. You will need... More
