DescriptionThis report describes results of a survey to determine Vermont residents' opinions about their state park system. Over 400 responses were obtained from current park users and nearly 300 came from non-users. Results suggest that both day and overnight state park users are quite satisfied with the quality of services and facilities at the Vermont park they had most recently visited. Non-users also had positive feelings about the system as a whole. User fees were not felt to be a problem for users, or deterents for non-use of the parks. One very useful aspect of the study was that over 200 respondents volunteered extemporaneous comments about the park system and the survey.
