Fathers day weekend and black flies???

Postby Len » Thu Mar 03, 2016 8:26 pm

Looking to book a Fathers Day weekend trip for this year. Being June 18th......If we went to say, Moffit Beach.......How likely would we be to be feeding ourselves to the flies there this year at that time?

Black flies are pretty much gone by then, but there have been seasons where they stick around a bit longer. It depends on how much it warms up by then. Bring some repellent just in case.

We live just 33 miles south of that campground, and we rarely have black fly problems in June.

Your chances of a black fly free weekend are very good.
Happy Camping!
