Document - 2009 White Salmon Wild and Scenic River Recreation Use Study


During the 2009 recreation season, researchers from West Virginia University, Penn State University, USFS Pacific Southwest Research Station, BOKU and University of Hannover conducted a River use study at the White Salmon Wild and Scenic River in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. The principle focus of this study was to better manage Special Use Permits in order to limit conflicts among visitors during high use seasons. Specifically, researchers wanted to identify any perceptions of crowding, acceptable number of times to see others, acceptable time to wait before starting their activity, reasons for recreating, quality of facilities and services, and how others impact their experience.
