DescriptionRoadside camping is a popular and widespread public outdoor recreation activity on New York State Forest Preserve (FP) lands within the Adirondack Park (AP). While several roadside camping areas exist on FP lands throughout the Park, little is known about these camping areas or the visitors who use them. Recently, debate has developed over how to define and manage roadside camping settings on these lands. State University of New York-College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY ESF) researchers conducted a qualitative study in order to better understand visitor attachment to these settings and visitor perceptions regarding the substitutability of other camping settings within the Adirondack Park for roadside camping.
