Preferences for Outdoor Recreation Facilities in Four State Parks
Abstract:Personal interviews were conducted on four state parks in northeastern Pennsylvania to measure the direction and amount of the demand for outdoor recreation facilities such as swimming beaches, picnic areas, fireplaces, sanitation facilities, campsite spacing, and camping facilities. A photo-choice method was used in the survey. Preference patterns were found to be consistent for the various facilities, so similar choices could be expected in comparable recreational situations. On both weekdays and weekends, campers differed significantly from noncampers in their preference patterns for swimming areas, fireplaces, camping facilities, and campsite spacings.
