About This Park

Howard Lake is a very popular campsite during the summer months. Howard Lake is known to have really good fishing during the spring and fall seasons. Some of the campsites at Howard Lake have a rustic feel to them while others are a bit nicer depending where you want to stay.

Update May 2019: Howard Lake has recently been updated to include accessible campsites and pit toilets; most access routes are now accessible as well and more campsites were added.
