Abstract : This report presents profiles of visitor spending generated from surveys conducted at 12 Corps of Engineers (CE) projects throughout the United States. Spending profiles are presented for both trip spending (spending for goods and services consumed during a single trip, e.g., food and lodging) and durable good spending (items that are used for multiple trips, e.g., boats and campers). Similarities and differences in spending patterns between user groups are presented and discussed. Estimated trip and durable good visitor spending is estimated for total CE recreation use by applying national spending profiles for campers and day users to total reported visitation for all CE projects. In addition, a procedure is presented for estimating visitor spending at CE projects not included in the spending survey. Economic impacts, Recreation, Visitor spending.
