Mackinaw, MI

Looking to escape to cooler weather from VA. The Mackinaw, MI area along the lake looks interesting to us for an August trip. Would like to know how the mosquitoes are around the area. I can put up with a few at night but prefer not to be in a place where they swarm around you day and night.

Mosquitoes

You will be fine as May and June are our big mosquito months. We are life long Yoopers that live a couple hours west of the Big Mac in a very rural setting and sit out in our yard till dark most nights with out any bugs at all this time of year.

We’ve made numerous trips to the UP of Michigan
In the Fall if you wait till after the first hard frost you will not encounter many bugs . The warm days , cool nights and the color of the foliage make the UP our favorite fall trip .
We also carry a bottle of 100% DEET .

Thanks, will head there in August

The heat and humidity are stifling right now. Today in VA the weatherman says it will feel like 110. It looks like mid 70s in the UP. I will bring my Deet but someone said a dab of vicks behind each ear will keep the M's away. Anyone tried it?
