The regions North of the Yukon River, all the way to the Arctic, are the worst for mosquitos in general.  The worst time of year to go is in July, however you are likely to encounter them as soon temperatures remain above freezing for a couple of weeks.

You can bring repellant, but the stuff that repels the best is bad for your skin and clothes, and will contain a measured amount of deet.  Since I personally prefer to not to crop dust myself, you can purchase netting to go around your hat or head, and maintain long sleeves and pants throughout the day. 

If you still get bit, don't scratch!

Unfortunately we don't have that guide in printed format.  You can explore all parks in the area on this site by clicking on the state and then zoom in.  All public lands (not just national parks) will be there.

Travel well!

This time of year, based on average temperatures of other lakes in the region, Lake Grinnell should likely be about 60°F give or take a few degrees.  That'll wake you right up!!
