We have been going to Fred Howard County Park for 15 years, and it is truly one of our favorite places. During spring break, it can get pretty crowded, but generally, most visitors are a bit older. It is wonderful for families, with play areas in the woods for children, softball fields, shelters and great walking trails. It is very popular with dog owners, who are usually very good about scooping up after their pets. You will see many kinds of birds, especially the large colony of double-crested cormorants which live along the causeway all year round. Dolphins are a frequent sight, too. The park is very popular with fishermen, and if you are walking along the causeway, you need to be careful on the bridges because of people fishing. The beach is beautiful and very well-maintained. There is a $5 fee for parking on the beach or causeway, but you can park in the wooded area of the park for free. Also has many great shelters for picnics.
