Abstract : This report documents the local economic impacts of marina slip users at Raystown Lake, located in southern Pennsylvania. This economic assessment is based on the results of a 1999 survey of a sample of Raystown Lake marina slip renters. Spending estimates are adjusted to 2004 dollars. The economic impacts estimated for Raystown Lake are useful for accountability purposes, lake support, and explaining the role of the lake in the region's economy. This report demonstrates how the survey results can also be used to evaluate management alternatives and strategies and to conduct sensitivity analyses.
