Legacy on the Lake
Civilian Conservation Corps workers spent years building this special park in the heart of Texas. Today, their legacy endures. Stay in a historic cabin, walk the scenic trails, or play in or on the cool lake.
Things to Do
The park sits on the shore of the 7,300-surface-acre Lake Brownwood. Reel in a fish, explore the lake by boat, or go for a swim. You can also water ski, Jet Ski and paddle. We loan fishing gear for use in the park.
Activities on land
Hike nearly six miles of trails. Rest on CCC-built benches along the way, and take in the view from the scenic and historic pavilion. Most trails are for hiking only, but the 2.89-mile Nopales Ridge Trail is also open to biking.
Hold your next reunion or meeting at one of our group halls. The CCC-built recreation hall is made of local natural materials, and its outdoor dance pavilion overlooks the lake.
Search for geocaches, watch for birds, look for wildlife and plants, and enjoy sunrises over the lake. We also have a volleyball court and softball field.
Camping & cabins
Campsites: Choose from water-only tent sites and sites with water and electricity. We also have 20 full hookup sites and 10 screened shelters.
Cabins & lodges: Reserve a two-person or four-person cabin, or go big and rent a lodge. Lodges hold from four to 26 people. Some cabins and lodges have views of the lake.
