Brownwood, Texas is the perfect Hill Country location for hunting. If you are looking for deer, turkey, dove, quail, duck or hogs, we have what you are hunting for. Hunting Lodges, Day Leases, Seasonal Leases, Guided Hunts, Weekend Leasing, Trophy & Exotic, and GREAT hunting are all available.
Many of Brownwood’s top leisure activities for locals and visitors – shopping, dining, visiting museums, and attending parades and festivals – happen in Historic Downtown Brownwood.
The Downtown district has a rich history of being the heart of the city, and at one time there were seven theatres on Center Avenue. Restoration has occurred on the Center Avenue, the “main” street of Downtown, and the Brownwood Lyric Theater is undergoing a complete renovation, and will soon be open again for live performances.
Lake Brownwood State Park is a treasure of the Hill country with 537.5 acres of lush grounds surrounded by Lake Brownwood, a 7300 – surface-acre-reservoir. Many structures in use today were constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the early 1930’s, from the timber and native rock found in the park.
Activities are picnicking, camping, hiking (2.5 miles of hiking trails and a 5-mile nature trail), motor boating, water skiing (jet skis allowed), fishing, nature study, swimming (In an unsupervised swimming area), and bird watching.
Facilities include cabins, lodges, tent sites, and RV spaces. The Group Recreation Hall is a favorite for reunions and events, with a rooftop balcony overlooking the Lake.
We have pocket reference guides for anything from birds, to cattle, to snakes and fish. There are regional books, children’s toys and books, books on Texas history, travel, courthouses, Texas humor and lingo, and bestselling and local cookbooks. There are also books about Fred Harvey and the Harvey Girls, Robert E. Howard, and Candy Barr. Horned Toad items are our best seller …from small figurines to earrings and pins.

In our cupboard, we have Roy Spence’s Royito’s Hot Sauce, Perini Ranch steak rub, sweet hot jalapeños, and Texas dips and spices.
