    Description

    This paper focuses on identifying applications of recreation survey results in the context of water-based recreation planning. Recreation researchers have sometimes been criticized for conducting research that is weak in applied value (Cordell 1999). The paper also focuses on the important, but sometimes forgotten role that private entities play (e.g., Pacific Gas and Electric Company or other utilities) in planning for and providing recreation opportunities. Organizations that manage water bodies in California are faced with providing increased public access and facilities to meet growing demand for outdoor recreation. Various regulatory requirements, such as the Federal Power Act, often compel these entities to collect data from recreational visitors, and use those data to develop long-term recreation management and planning strategies.
