I just camped just all but two campgrounds along the trail. I only encountered ticks at the end of the trail but I didn't have much of a problem with mosquitoes. I don't know about Coopers Landing, the ground had a lot of silt left over from the flood. The other one I skipped was Riverview. The grass was high and it looked like tick heaven. The Windsor Park, Roundhouse, Katfish Katy's, Hart Conservation, Hermann City Park, Marthasville, and Klondike, were all good. Watch out hiking the Portland to Blufton leg, it was like something from a Hitchcock movie with the skeeters.
