I love your state for dirt bike riding !!!!


Wanting to pick your brain's on the subject of mosquitos in the Summer.

How is July for camping in July for the Cadillac vs Wolverine vs Kinross area as it relates to mosquitos ?

We usually go to MI in the early-mid Fall, so any insight on July would be appreciated.

Thanks !

There will be lots of 'skeeters anywhere you go in Northern MI

Cadillac is more populated than Wolverine area, more meat-to-skeeter ratio. Had cabins near both of those over the past 40yrs. Wolverine was always maximum mosquito density. Spray up and ignore/swat them like we do.

Don't forget the black flies  Though they are more of an issue in the UP.

The Squitos depend on how wet it is. They can be pretty mild if it's dry.

Thanks for the replies you guys.

I guess I’ll stock up on ThermaCell re-fill packs...

They always bite where it's not easy to smack them. I hate them. And leave a nasty welt on me. Fickin' ruthless little blood suckers.

Just to switch gears a minute....

What are the Covid restrictions / mandates / directives in MI and how likely is it that they will be enforced out in campgrounds and smaller towns ?

There really isn't any enforcement as far as the public is concerned.

Just capacity limits on businesses.

Pick a spot where there's a chance for a breeze, closer to the great lakes, the better the chance. If you camp with electricity, a couple cheapo box fans will wreck the skeeters flight, great for sitting around camp at night.
