I do not believe that Lake Jacomo was every a quarry. The idea for the lake was first pitched in 1932, however it wasn't until 20 years later that local voters approved a bond issue to create and develop the lake. Lake Jocamo officially opened May 30, 1959.

The name comes from an abbreviation of Jackson County, MO.

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!
