I day hiked/climbed Pilot Knob so did not camp. The area around Desolation Lake wasn't too bad, though. We took a little snack break there and weren't eaten alive. Some folks were camped on the bench just south of the lake and seemed to be enjoying themselves.
Thanks very much. We are intending to camp in and around Desolation with some day excursions. Your info puts me at ease. I can deal with skeeters, just not black clouds of them covering me head to toe and blocking out the sun.
Much appreciated. I suppose we can find a dry area with a bit of wind exposure to beat the skeeters.
