This report suggests some concepts and patterns of thinking which may aid the resource manager in accomplishing his recreation management goals of public service and resource protection. It suggests that by considering the collective aspects of recreation behavior, such as activity aggregations, the manager may plan to enhance variation in recreational opportunities. Also, it suggests that consideration of the recreationists' definition of the resource system may enhance user satisfaction and lessen managerial problems. Data collected in the first phase of an exploratory study are used to illustrate the significance of these two issues.
