    Description

    Twenty-two campsites in the Eagle Cap Wilderness were examined in 1979 and then reexamined in 1984 to compare the extent of ecological impacts. Of the 22 campsites, six had received low use, six moderate use, and 10 high use, Of the high-use sites, six had been closed to use in the late 1970’s by a regulation prohibiting camping within 200 ft (61 m) of lakeshores. This stratification made it possible to evaluate whether or not change over time was related to amount of use. It was also possible to evaluate the effectiveness of campsite closures in promoting recovery.
