Recreational leasing of industrial forestlands has become a common practice in many areas of the country, although little is known about the satisfaction levels of the leaseholders involved in recreational lease programs. During the summer of 1999, surveys were mailed to New York industrial forest companies and their leaseholders to determine leaseholder satisfaction levels with recreational leasing and the ability of industrial forest managers to predict these levels. Thirteen companies were sent mail surveys, and 9 responded (response rate of 69%); 540 recreational leaseholders were sent surveys, and 362 responded (deliverable response rate of 68%). Leaseholder importance and satisfaction ratings for 14 lease attributes were analyzed. Most leaseholders rated their overall satisfaction with their recreation lease experience as satisfied (49%) or very satisfied (36%), and a smaller percentage of leaseholders indicated that they were neutral (8%), dissatisfied (4%), or very dissatisfied (3%) with their recreational lease experience.
