Ratio Estimates of Free Campground Use
Abstract:Recreation administrators and planners need estimates of campground use, but use estimates on free camping areas often are difficult to obtain. It is possible to estimate total visitor-nights and visitor-hours of use per week as a ratio of observed weekend use. Ratio estimates are an inexpensive method and subjectively appear to have reasonable precision. An example of ratio estimates for camping use was developed in a 1963 study on the Yellow River State Forest in Iowa.
