Describing recreation use with a mathematical model is one of the most important but elusive objectives in recreation research. This study investigated the relationship between camper use and 40 physical site characteristics of 24 Adirondack campgrounds. Factor analysis identified 9 factors that conveyed all the essential information in the original set of 40 site variables. Regression analysis related average annual total visitor-days per campground to factors containing campground size and associated water-recreation variables. Results should be of interest to researchers and planners who seek a better understanding of the factors that influence outdoor recreation demand.
