1. Re: How are the Mosquitoes...especially near the NPS Campground?

We have had so much rain they are awful on the ground level, not as much on top decks. It all depends on the winds. We are having east wind the last couple days which blows them away. Anytime the wind direction has a W in it you will see bugs. NW, W, SW = bugs and the farther south the worse they are.
