The wilderness opinions and experiences of 503 members of the Illinois general public indicated that about 6 percent had recently visited a wilderness area but only about 1.5 percent made annual visits. Even though their knowledge of wilderness was relatively low, the public generally approved of wilderness. Users knew more about it and approved of the concept in greater proportion than the general public. The majority of both sampled groups approved of the present use pattern in wilderness with the exception of hunting. Both groups also believed cutover lands could be used as wilderness.
