Education to Reduce Impacts in Forest Campgrounds

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

Distributing a brochure on low-impact camping at the entrance station of a modern forest campground on an Army Corps of Engineers reservoir in Virginia reduced tree damage and litter in campsites by about 50 percent. When the brochure was distributed to campers through personal contact in campsites, the acts decreased by about 80 percent. Requesting camper assistance in rule enforcement did not further decrease tree damage and littering.
