Socioeconomic Variables Related to Campsite Use

Campsite demand on the Huron-Manistee National Forests was considered to depend on two groups of family-user characteristics: (1) those that were associated with whether a family camped on these Forests in 1962, and (2) those that were associated with the amount of camping they did. The variables associated with whether a family camped were family income, occupation, education, age, and number of children. The most important characteristics associated with amount of camping were occupation, age, years of camping on the Forest, family per capita income, type of camping shelter, education, age of youngest child, and destination of the trip. The contradiction between these results and the assumptions underlying existing recreation use projections may be more apparent than real.
