Recreation Site Management: How to Rehabilitate a Heavily Used Campground Without Stopping Visitor Use
Abstract:Ground-cover vegetation in a heavily used campground in Idaho was reestablished and maintained through intensive cultural treatment. Good campground layout and artificial surfacing of heavy-use areas were important to this success. Costs were moderate and seem justified for sustaining recreational benefits from similar campgrounds, rather than allowing repetition of previous deterioration patterns.
