Pagination or Media Count:
The Campground Receipt Study CRS was established to systematically collect information on visitor characteristics at Corps of Engineers fee campgrounds. This system has proved to be an efficient method of collecting trend data and utilization of recreation facilities. Since the creation of the CRS there have been many changes in the study procedures, data collection form, and study sites. The main purpose of this report is to describe the data and the trends in camping use indicated by the CRS data collected from 1986 to 1987. The CRS data represent the best available nationwide sample of descriptive characteristics of visitors to Corps campgrounds. The data base can be used by all levels within the Corps to examine current use patterns and, with several years of data, to monitor and evaluate changes in visitor characteristics over time. This report includes several management applications to provide an analysis of campground occupancy rates.
