Abstract

Annual visitation to national park areas is now counted in the hundreds of millions. In the decade of the 1970s visitation increased by 30 percent; in the 1980s it rose 35 percent. If this trend continues, national park areas can expect a demand for an additional 60-90 million recreation visits by the year 2000. This presents the National Park Service with a huge challenge--maintaining the integrity of park resources and visitors' experiences.
