The Great Outdoors

The slow, meandering Pecan Bayou runs right in front of Riverside Park RV and is ideal for launching canoes and kayaks. There are rental companies that can arrange a day trip and collect you from the finish point. It would be a gentle and peaceful way to get closer to nature and spot the many wild animals that call the bayou home.Just north of Brownwood, the Pecan Bayou has been dammed to form Lake Brownwood. The dam was built in 1933, after the area suffered a devastating flood, to form the 6,500-acre reservoir that now offers plenty of recreational facilities. The lake is stocked with various species of bass, plus catfish and crappie to keep anglers happy, while the four public boat launches make getting out on the water very easy.Several marinas are dotted around the lake, offering full marine service, bait sales, angling supplies, and boat rentals. The lake is big enough for the powerboats and jet skis that can be hired to live alongside anyone that prefers to explore the craggy coast by canoe or kayak. You can also discover several small islands in the lake, for an interesting day out on the water. There are several public recreation areas around the lake where you can leave your RV rental while exploring the area.On the north side of the lake is Lake Brownwood State Park, covering over 500-acres of beautiful woodland and lake shoreline. In the park are several short hikes, some staying close to the shore, and others taking you to the top of the bluffs for lovely views of the lake. The longest hike is the Nopales Ridge Trail, an almost 3-mile loop that takes you past prickly pear and yucca plants while circling the ridge. The hike is graded as moderate, so suitable for most people of average fitness.

Exploring the Area

Across the street from the campground is an 18-hole frisbee golf course if you are feeling energetic, while downtown Brownwood is a short walk. Nearby are several grocery stores and supermarkets, plus some restaurants and bars.Nextdoor to Riverside Park RV is Riverside Park, a large town park that incorporates an 18-hole frisbee golf course, boat ramps, sand volleyball pitch, and playgrounds for the kids. A short nature trail of just under a mile has informative boards about nature and wildlife you can see here. While RV camping at Riverside Park RV, you will find this park a short walk away.When you’d like to discover a little about the history of the area, then a visit to the Brown County Museum of History might help. Inside, you’ll find exhibits stretching back to the frontier town era, when the Penateka Comanche and settlers first came into contact, right up to modern times. An interesting fact about Brownwood is that it was home to a WWII prisoner of war camp. During their internment, German prisoners had drawn murals on the walls of the camp, but when it closed, they were covered up and forgotten about. Now, a 22-foot mural featuring an American tank and troops has been discovered and is being moved into the museum.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
