Lake Howard is a very small fishing lake. Whidbey Island is about an hour drive from Lake Howard. I've lived in the area all my life. Says J. Eldevik
The road is washed out about 5 miles short of the lake Says Sonya
If you're here at Lake Howard during the wintertime you could always pop by Summit Adventures and rent a snow mobile. If by chance you have a boat, Geddes Marina is an outstanding marina; there are plenty of folks from Stanwood here.
Lake Howard is near Funtasia Family Fun Park where you may have heaps of pleasure; if you came to camp Lake Goodwin Resort is a great place to do that.
