We visited brownwood lake state park on a road trip from Dallas on a unusually cold November Sunday drive. Unseasonable weather made the 36 degrees and 25 mile an hour north wind a challenge to enjoy the great scenic views at the park. But nonetheless we grinned and bared the weather and got some great pictures. We had the special... More

I'm usually not down for hiking, but it was awesome. They have camp grounds, cabins, swimming areas, pavilions, and several hiking trails. The trails range from beginner to advanced. I had fun exploring several of them.

We drove through just to check it out to see if we wanted to bring our boat back to fish later in the year. The lake was very low and it looked as if the boat ramps were closed. There were a few people camping there and it looks like a very nice place to camp and spend some time.... More

My husband and I rented a 2 person cabin (#6) for Memorial Day weekend. Although it rained the entire time, we still enjoyed our stay and will definetly return. The cabin was rustic, clean and just perfect. It was secluded with a beautful view. We had wildlife come and visit us (wild turkeys, deer, armadillo and a fox twice!) and... More

Easter w/ extended family at Lake Brownwood is always a treat. Cabin #5 this time around. Secluded and quiet, away from the bustle of the campground but close enough to walk over and join the fray. Have always enjoyed this park, even though the old fort style playground of my youth is long gone, it's still a great park.

Been to many Texas Parks and I enjoyed this one for the trails and the quiet. Buildings from the CCC still on site, with one area having full hook ups. Very nice scenery.

The Cabins for two were very well kept, good hot water, clean stove & refrigerator, and the hiking trails were GREAT! We saw two foxes, an armadillo, and many different birds. We enjoyed the amazing sunrise over the lake and plan on camping out again in the near future. They had a water break and the park ranger worked late... More

Cabin 1 is comfortable and cozy. It's situated overlooking the lake and you can enjoy watching the birds fly home to roost as the sun sets. Windows allow for watching the sunrise from bed. The fireplace is large and at the foot of the bed. The hiking trail is nearby but the cabin is shielded from direct view. We had... More

Spent a long weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) at Lake Brownwood State Park. Stayed in the Council Bluff campground - site 88. The staff at check in was excellent. The park is nice and clean including the rest rooms/showers. The park was pretty busy on Saturday and Sunday which was no surprise sine the weather was clear and sunny with highs... More

We brought our camper to the lake to stay in, but found some lovely cabins around the lake. We plan to go back on our anniversary to stay in the secluded cabins to enjoy the sunsets at the lake. If you enjoy fishing there is a pier that is open 24 hours. A great place for family events or week-... More
