The Town of Brookneal is located on US Route 501 in southeastern Campbell County and has since its founding in 1802 served as a center of commerce for the surrounding areas in Campbell, Charlotte and Halifax counties. Brookneal is an incorporated town with a population of approximately 1,250 and serving approximately 40,000 in the immediate area. The thriving economy includes a diversified manufacturing base, agriculture, service firms and retail offerings.

Brookneal is a full service town with comprehensive planning, zoning, water and sewer, sanitation service and police.

Excellent recreational opportunities abound in the area. Public facilities include a large recreation park, a boat ramp on the Staunton River and a historic community center.
