The vibe at Mosquito Flat Backpacker Campground
Drop some Mosquito Flat Backpacker Campground knowledge on us.
It was referred to us as Little Lakes Valley.
If my wife had asked me to drive to a place called Mosquito Flat, I may have done a bit more research.
The hiking itself was very easy, with very little elevation gain and drop as you pass from each valley/lake to the next.
Most of the hikers that we saw appeared to just be there for the day. With no designated campsites, we broke off of the main trail and found the most picturesque meadow you can imagine. All to ourselves.
Just a few mosquitoes, no big deal...until it was. We literally got swarmed and were being bitten repeatedly right through our clothing!
We broke camp in record time and left the way we came though black clouds of skeeters. Wrong time of year I guess (June).
