It's fantastic. Bugs are probably at their minimum. Lakes are nearly at their warmest. Expect rain, as always. Nights will start to get colder (40's are possible).

The later you go in August, the better the temps. Cool nights. Can be stormy if paddling. If it has been wet, expect mosquitoes. Less people the later in the month you go.
