We never camp "up north" until after mid-july because of the biting flies. Horseflies in particular can be maddening.

With the mild winter and heavy rains, this is going to be a banner year for bugs, annoying to their hosts. Plan for the protection now. It will get more expensive and limited in supply as bug season approaches.

That is a lifesaver with the bloodsuckers.....

With the flies.....a breezy day helps and sitting out in the sun. Create your own breeze with a fan wherever you sit.

If you plan 3 weeks in the UP plan ahead as there are city, county and state camping areas to choose from and they can be very differently in price and amenities, especially for non-residents.
Bugs are always smaller than the gator/snake-bait of Fla, in June. Beaches quieter, see may-30-14 photo

This Yooper says DEET helps the case on mosquitos and flies. Rainy weather promotes mosquitos because it helps them hatch. Mosquitos will disappear if it's a dry season. Screened patio tents will allow you to stay outside when the flies are bad. The flies seem to be bad along Lake Superior when it is warm weather. The flies only last a couple of days at a time. Come on up to the U.P. of Michigan!! It's a great place.
