Abstract:The report empirically examines aspects of the belief that wilderness reservations unfairly deprive elderly citizens and young families of recreation opportunities. Evidence is presented that none of the principal forest-related recreation activities represent a "majority vote" of the American people and appear to be unappealing to most elderly citizens. Statistically significant associations were found for the following: combination-camping families represent the early stages of the family life cycle; easy-access-camping families represent middle and postretirement stages; and remote-camping families represent those just beginning their families and those whose grown children are leaving home.
