    Description

    As the boating population and number of boats in use have grown in the United States, boaters' perceptions of density at recreation sites and the associated impacts on their experience (e.g., satisfaction) are becoming increasingly important. This paper explores a recreational boating crowding-satisfaction model derived from previous work using safety and enjoyment as mediating variables. We also tested our crowding-satisfaction model among day and overnight users at three lakes in the Highland Lakes region within the lower Colorado River basin. Our analysis revealed no significant difference between day and overnight users for any of the relationships tested.
