LAKE BROWNWOOD STATE PARK
Lake Brownwood State Park, in Brown County, is 537.5 acres acquired by deed from the Brown County Water Improvement District No. 1 in 1934 that was opened in 1938.
Near the geographical center of Texas, the park is situated on Lake Brownwood, a 7300-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 (CCC) in the early 1930s, from timber and native rock found in the park.
The park offers an atmosphere of rustic beauty and tranquility, with miles of shoreline where wildflowers, white-tailed deer, ducks, raccoons, armadillos, squirrels, and birds can be observed in a natural setting. Popular fish include crappie, perch, catfish, and bass.
