Your letter to the bugman:  While we were camping, these bugs came out at night. They were somewhat slow moving, flew into the lantern and then crawled on the ground. Their sound when flying was somewhat like the sound of a bee. They were a little over an inch long.
Thank you,  Gary

Ten Lined June Beetle

Dear Gary,
This is a Ten Lined June Beetle and they are currently active in many western states.  Pine Valley is an appropriate location as adults feed at night on the needles of conifers, including pine.
