My girlfriend and are planning a week-long trip to Canada from June 6 - 12. I would really like to go to Algonquin. However, I am wondering how bad the black flies and mosquitoes are during that time. I have heard that early June is supposed to be pretty bad, but I am wondering if they would be so bad as to make it not worth the trip. If we used a reasonable amount of bug spray, not talking about a DEET shower, would we be able to comfortably canoe, hike, sit around a fire, etc? This is a last trip before we part ways for a few months, and I dont want the bugs to a big downer. If they would be unbearable during this time, do you have any recommendations of places in southern Ontario that would not have so many bugs during this week?
Also, how early should one make reservations for a tent site on highway 60 or an interior spot during the above week?
