In fact, when I looked up "good camping sites" on the web, I found a lot of advice saying not to camp immediately adjacent to water, because it attracts biting insects. However, I'm assuming this is not completely universal. Because I also found many of these sites saying that camping under trees for shelter is a good idea. Less wind and dew and cold from exposure to the elements, they say.
In Australia you never, ever set up a camp under trees. Unless you want a huge branch falling on you while you sleep. Eucalyptus trees are notorious for having heavy, but structurally weak branches, which can drop off at the merest sideways glance.
 Granted, some of them do warn about camping under "dead branches", lest they fall, but they seem fine with camping under trees otherwise. Which, again, is never a good idea in Australia. Live eucalyptus branches are just as likely to drop off at any time as dead ones.
