    MI -North Manitou Island

    I am heading to NMI for three nights of camping with my family. I was wondering if anyone has been there recently and knows what the mosquitos/flies are like this season? We are planning on heading south from the ranger station and camping down by Dimmick Pointe.

    Ask 3club. He was just there a little back. He is the authority on NMI.
    Its a proven fact that 78.4% of all statstics are made up on the spot.

    A group of 5 hangers were there for 5 days from June 23-28. The Black Flies were absolutely miserable on the beaches. The Mosquitos were brutal on the interior trails. I actually had a deer lick my hindside while i was hanging in my hammock. Dimmick pointe is closed for the Piper Plyover mating season. We stayed about 400 yards north of the sign saying the area was closed off on the eastern shore. Just south of "car" on the map.

    Here's a small video i created.... It's my first ever using imovie and go pro footage.
