    Description

    This is a report on a survey of 2,213 households and their potential for entering the camping market in 1973. One out of every two households was found to be in one of three stages of the camping-involvement cycle. Active campers included 21 percent of the sample, up by 2 percent since 1971; inactive campers, 20 percent, up by 6 percent; and potential campers, 9 percent, down by 2 percent. Reasons for the increased numbers of inactive campers, and possible barriers between potential and active participation, are examined in detail. Twelve separate components of the popular image of camping - environments, conditions, and attractions - are examined for each stage of the camping-involvement cycle.
