Abstract:

An experimental recreation use survey was put into effect in seven U.S. Army Engineer Districts at 52 reservoir projects in 1966 to test a survey procedure designed to provide a low cost system for obtaining reliable, consistent recreation use estimates for research and planning activities. One objective of the experimental survey was to provide the basis for designing a Corps-wide survey procedure. Testing in the seven selected districts was made so the weaknesses in the survey system could be identified and evaluated. The report presents the evaluation of the existing survey procedures and provides alternative suggestions for improvement of the survey. Volume one presents the alternative survey designs, built upon accomplishments of the existing survey procedure. A modified recreation use survey designed for administration by district offices is presented. Modified author abstract
