Howard offers a great place to camp!

The City of Howard operates a Golf Course on the east edge of town from mid-April until roughly mid-October. It is a fun 9-hole course that has a creek running through it with mature trees. No tee times are required and the club house is open with a great selection of food & beverages available.
