This is a favorite place to all the locals. Great campgrounds with lots of things to see and do. Nice place in the summer when the temp in the valley is hot.

I really do love the place, lots of trails, fishing, hunting and winter sports. Unfortunately they are suffering a drought right now (this is year 4 of the drought) and the lake is so low that fishing is not happening, plus no campfires at this...More

I used to go to this lake all the time and rent boats but for some reason the marina is closed this year. The lake gets really low by the middle of summer too. Beautiful area tho.

Pretty surroundings. Could use a little more seating. It may be small, but good food. Nice afternoon ride on your motorcycle.

This park/campground area is perfect for a quick getaway or long term stay. Lots of trails, nice cabins/camping sites, and beautiful lake for swimming or boating. The lake was very low during our visit but our daughters still had a great time in the water.

Due to the lack of rain and snow this last winter, the lake has been so low that you could not launch your boat. There are still a lot of fish in the lake.

The campgrounds at Howard Prairie Lake are great. Most of them are level spots with plenty of privacy. They have a wonderful restaurant that serves the best fish and chips. The only down side is the water level of the lake has been low for...More

Sorry, I have not rented a cabin at Howard Prairie Lake, but I'm sure you could call them for this information. Sorry I could not help you.
