Abstract : Little recreation information that describes visitor use patterns and characteristics has been collected systematically at Corps projects. A system is now being developed to collect longitudinal information concerning visitor characteristics at Corps of Engineers fee campgrounds. This system has proved to be an effective method of collecting reliable trend data and is cost-efficient. The Campground Receipt Study (CRS) is the development and field testing of this system. This report describes the development and evaluation of the 1980 test of the CRS. Examples of some possible analyses of data from the CRS data are presented to illustrate the potential usefulness of the information to all levels of management and planning as well as to recreation researchers within the Corps. The analyses are based on data collected during only a portion of the 1980 recreation sea and are, therefore, only presented for illustrative purposes. They indicate the type of information that could be readily provided to decision-makers and researchers through implementation of the CRS procedures. The analyses presented are not intended to be a complete list of uses for the data; other applications can be found within the Corps as well as from other Federal agencies, universities, and private research organizations.
