Lake Brownwood was created by damming Pecan Bayou, which is a tributary of the Colorado River. Many structures in use today in the park were constructed by the Civilian Conservaton Corps (CCC) in the early 1930s from timber and native rock found in the park. Activities include picnicking, camping, hiking (2.5 miles of hiking trails and a .5-mile nature trail.), boating (motors allowed), water skiing (jet skis allowed), fishing, nature study, swimming (unsupervised area), and bird watching.
