Three of us friends got to stay in Oak Lodge at Lake Brownwood State Park. It was clean, in good repair, and comfortable. The beds are full size, so one of us slept on the very comfortable long couch. The A/C unit is noisy so we turned it off at night. A roadrunner and a wild turkey hung around the... More

In response to the one reviewer who had a bad experience at Lake Brownwood with noisy, close neighbors and dirty bathrooms..... I don't know what was going on when you visited but that is definitely NOT the norm at Lake Brownwood. We live 50 miles away and camp there at least 2 or 3 times a year. We are heading... More

Great for the family! Lots of options to keep you engaged. Especially nice for younger kids with the ducks, geese and playground.

We stayed in Cabin # 6, which is a two person cabin situated on the bluff overlooking Lake Brownwood. We were pleased to find the cabin very clean with everything in working order. The cabin included a comfortable double bed, night stand, bedside lamp, foot tables, and lounging chairs. The bathroom was clean and included a toilet, sink & nice... More

I recently spent 4 nights in one of the CCC stone cabins. Very nice experience. Good trails, good lake access, and very nice staff. The cabins are fairly comfortable, but not perfect. Good kitchen area, hot water, plenty of room. Beds are mushy and probably old, but it works for a few nights! Cabins have good access to trails and... More

Spent the night at Lake Brownwood State Park in one of the cabins built by the CCC in the 1930s. The cabin was beautifully built and comfortable. Would definitiely recommend it to anyone visiting the park

We have stayed many times at the park camping, we have also stayed in the cabins and screen shelters,. There really is something for every adventurer. The park is always in great condition and with the lake being full (Nov 2015) it is a wonderful place. A couple of hints. If you make reservations using the Texas Parks Reservation system,... More

The past years this lake, like so many other TX lakes, really suffered. I've been to LB many times and it's so much better with water in it. The State Park is a great place to stay and has some great rustic cabins.

We were not prepared to camp, but picked out some very interesting looking cabins located in the park. Would return for a longer time and actually stay in the park on another visit for sure.

Lake Brownwood State Park is a nice place to spend a few hours. It was too cold to go in the water the last time that I was there; however, my friend and I encountered several turkey buzzards sitting in a tree as we climbed the hill. I confess that they did make me a bit nervous, but nothing happened!... More
